Introducing…Digital Hide and Seek Games!!
When playing digital hide and seek games, you simply “hide” the object behind any picture and then students answer questions to try and “seek” it out. It’s that easy! And the coolest part? It can work for any grade or any subject! This game is played in PowerPoint or Google Slides. It’s 100% editable so you can use this to fit the needs of your students and can be played over and over again without ever getting boring.
Choose from 1 of 10 premade templates or use the blank version to create your own questions. The possibilities are endless–for example, you can do math facts, sight words, science standards, social studies questions…the list goes on and on!
The pros of online hide and seek games
There are lots of pros when it comes to playing hide and seek online including:
-Whether teaching online or in person, these hide and seek games are perfect for any setting and age group.
-Simply use one of the 10 pre-made math activity templates OR use the 11th template which is blank to add your own content.
-There is no prep for you because no printing is involved.
How do you play virtual hide and seek games?
This game is played in PowerPoint. First, drag the object on the left behind any picture on the screen so it is “hiding”. Repeat this on each page so all 10 objects are hidden.
Next, put the game in “Slide Show” mode to play!
Then, have students “seek” where the object is by calling on students to say answers to the questions on screen. Click to see if their guess is right.
After that, when you click each picture, it’ll magically disappear to see if the student has “found” the object!
Then, whichever student finds the hidden object gets to come to the front of the room and call on students to guess on the next slide.
There are 10 pre-made sets included and 1 blank version. You can edit ANY question on ANY slide or use the blank set to create completely new questions for your classroom.
The sky is the limit when using the blank template! You can then add whatever questions you like and differentiate so this activity meets the needs of YOUR class!

2. Mixed Review of Addition Facts
3. Addition Double Facts
4. Subtraction Facts to 20
5. Mixed Review of Subtraction Facts

How do you play hide and seek on Zoom?
It’s easy to use digital hide and seem games on Zoom. You can do this one of two ways: PowerPoint or Google Slides.
If you’re using PowerPoint, you can simply open the presentation on your computer and share your screen with your class while you play. After you share you screen, make sure you put the game in “Slide Show” mode so the answers are “clickable” and will disappear for you
If you’re using Google Slides, you can do it the same way with screen sharing. However, instead of clicking the answers so they disappear, you will drag the questions to the side each time a student guesses an answer to reveal if the picture is hidden there or not.

Ideas on how to implement hide and seek games
-Use the pre-made math templates to practice math facts or whole group fact fluency
-Also, another possibility is to use the blank copy to practice mathematics concepts, reading or English Language Arts ( ELA ) concepts, science or social studies standards, etc.
-You can reuse the game weekly with different content OR use it again and again with the same content. Simply move the objects around to new places so students can continue to play digital hide and seek.
-This game could also be used in small groups or centers around the room. If each group has access to a computer, this game could be set up for each group to play with!
