Family Feud…Skype Style

And the survey says…this is a great idea!

But then, Mr. Curran is full of great ideas. We jumped at the opportunity when he and his 4th grade class invited us to participate in this game. Both classes took a Google Form survey and gave their answer to several questions. These were used as the data for the Skype Feud. The hands-down favorite question for this fun, end-of-the-year activity was, “Name a good gift for a pirate.”

True to the style of the classic Family Feud game show, two students faced off in a race to ring the buzzer (bell) first and give the answer that received the highest number of responses. There were 8 fast paced rounds that began with points at face value then progressed into double and triple points.


It was a close, exciting game that actually came down to the last question. The Techie Kids emerged victorious! We were just so grateful that we’ve been able to connect with so many wonderful classes this year.

Thank you Mr. Curran and students for being such gracious hosts!


How could you use this idea in your class?

What would be a good question for another Skype Feud with an academic focus?

What game show would you like to try out on Skype?

  2. I have never seen family feud, but hey I can guess! Best present for a pirate? Amazonian Scarlet McCaw. not too sure about the spelling there. For a young pirate, chocolate coins, for mrs pirate, a nice lady pirate’s outfit!
    We used to have a programme here called The Generation Game, the bit I liked as a child was when about 30 gifts went by on a conveyor belt and then the contestants won whatever they could remeber. So a memory game on Skype, are you up for the challenge?

  3. Dear Techie Kids,

    That looked so much fun I wish we could of got to skype with one of our blog buddies on Techie Kids this year. It reminds me of the time we played Family Feud at my church last year. It was so much fun.

    Your friend, Courtny

  4. I love this idea….very clever and clearly everyone was having a great time. You could totally do an academic version around any of the subject areas.

    Thanks for sharing.
