Teach Starter Publishing
PowerPoint | 13 pages | Grades: 2 - 6

Kid-friendly Hangman

The Disappearing Ice Cream Sundae interactive PowerPoint is perfect for kids! It functions the same as the game we all know but is targeted toward children (or anyone with a sweet tooth). Let’s face it, don’t we all dream about ice cream during the day? No? Just us? 🍨

  • Ask students to guess one letter at a time by clicking on a letter tile.
    • If the letter is in the word, it will automatically appear on one of the letter lines.
    • If the letter is not in the word, they will have to click the Eraser button to make part of the ice cream sundae disappear.
  • If they guess the whole word with ice cream still in the bowl, then they win!

The summer words that are included in the game are:

  • heat
  • pool
  • beach
  • summer
  • swimsuit
  • sunshine
  • vacation
  • barbecue
  • ice cream
  • water park.

Editable Interactive Version!

Yes, that’s right! You can add your own words to the game! Simply choose the Editable version using the drop-down menu. This PowerPoint allows you to drag letter tiles onto the slide to spell your own words.

It’s perfect for:

  • practicing weekly spelling words
  • learning new vocabulary
  • word of the day activities.

Download it now before the ice cream sundae melts away!
