Today, we’re going to talk about Blue Kit, a fun twist on your typical review game that brings energy and engagement back into the classroom. In this video, we’ll explore Blue Kit from both the teacher and student perspectives.
To start using Blue Kit, you’ll need to log in to your account on bluekit.com. If you don’t have an account yet, click on the sign-up button. If you already have an account, click on the log-in button.
Once logged in, you’ll be taken to the Blue Kit dashboard. This is where you can create your question set or discover sets created by other teachers.
If you want to create your own question set, click on the “Create a Set” button. If you’re looking for pre-existing sets, click on “Discover Sets”.
In this video, we’ll focus on the “Discover Sets” section. Here, you’ll find a wide variety of sets created by other teachers. You can also use the search bar to find sets related to specific topics.
For this demonstration, we’ll explore the “Name That Animal” set. This set is great for teaching vocabulary or as a fun introductory game for your students.
Each question in the set includes an image and multiple choice options. The answers are randomized for each student, and there is a time limit for each question.
To host the game for your students, click on the “Host” button. Blue Kit offers different game modes to choose from, each with a unique interface and gameplay.
In this video, we’ll use the “Racing” game mode. Students will answer questions, race opponents, and use powerups to reach the finish line first.
Before starting the game, you can adjust settings such as allowing late joining, using random names, and the number of questions.
Once you’re ready, click on the “Host Game” button to start the game with your students.

For the purpose of today’s video, you have the ability to add many more questions depending on the question set. To get started, click on the “Host Now” button and turn off the sound. Instruct students to go to bluegit.com/play and enter the game ID.
Now let’s take a look at the teacher perspective and the student perspective. The teacher perspective is on the left, and the student perspective is on the right.
As a student, enter the game ID provided by your teacher and add your nickname. Then select a character. Wait for the teacher to start the game.
The goal is to be the first to answer 10 questions correctly. There is fun music that plays during the game, but it can be turned off. Answer the questions to move closer to the finish line. The game ends when the first student completes the race.
After the game, you can view the report and get stats on how students responded. Bluekit provides helpful feedback and detailed reports for teachers.
