Mystery Pictures – Interactive Powerpoint

Teach Starter Publishing
PowerPoint, PDF | Years: F - 6

An interactive PowerPoint where students try to guess the picture before it is fully revealed.

Your students will love trying to guess what each mystery picture is in this PowerPoint!

Each picture is covered in tiles. Each tile will gradually disappear to reveal more of the picture.

To ensure the animations work correctly, play the game in Slide Show mode. This presentation contains a large number of animations, so it may take a minute to fully load in PowerPoint.

    This is great thanks! Can you pause the slideshow?

      Hi Tara, yes you can pause the slideshow by right-clicking your mouse, this does bring up a menu but can effectively be used to buy your students some more guessing time! Have a great day!

    I would love to be able to write maths problems on different boxes. I can do this but it wont allow me to only reveal that box when the answer is correct.

      Hi Michelle, Thanks for your suggestion. We do have something similar to what you are after. You can take a look at that resource here: https://www.teachstarter.com/au/teaching-resource/add-and-reveal-the-picture-powerpoint-addition-practice-basic/ If this isn't exactly what you are after, you can also suggest a resource here: https://www.teachstarter.com/suggest-a-resource/?resource_type=resource Hope this helps!

    I would love this as a template with the ability to put my own images underneath. I think it would work super well as a discussion starter for a range of topics.

      Hi Indi, that's a great idea. So, essentially you would like this to be an editable template? I've just popped through a suggest a change to this resource for you which you can find by following this link - https://www.teachstarter.com/au/request/change-mystery-pictures-interactive-powerpoint-2/. This will go straight to our Resource team as a suggested change to this resource. Have a lovely day!
