1. Divide your students into teams - 4 or more if possible. Let each team decide upon a name. Their names must be relative to Mammals, ie. Dolphin Dudes.
2. Explain that each team will pick a card from a hat numbered from 1 to 4. This will determine the order of questioning.
3. Explain that you will read a question to a team. Each question will count 10 to 40 points. If the team cannot answer the question they can "Pass" to the next team. The team with the highest points wins!
