Hopewell Culture Trivia Bee
This computer quiz game asks 50 multiple-choice questions about Hopewell Culture's rich history. It is presented in PowerPoint, so most players won't need special equipment, software or instructions to get started. A separate, printable tally sheet is provided so that players can keep track of questions that they have answered correctly.

It can be played alone or as a group activity, especially if large-screen projection equipment is available.
