I don't know where I saw this, but I downloaded an APP called socrative. You can put in quizzed, bell ringers, or space game problems and then the kids can get in groups and use their phone as an answering source.

It's so cool. My only issue will be if it's blocked at school- that's the first thing I'll have to check.
