Authentic Lessons for 21st Century Learning

Scoot With Blooket

A Digital Way for Students to Practice Their Learning

Sherry Franklin | Published: April 10th, 2023 by K20 Center



Scoot is a strategy where students move to complete tasks that have been placed at different locations in the classroom. After spending a specified amount of time at one station, students move to the next task.


Blooket is a free educational tool that enables teachers to gamify quizzes, homework, and other activities using a variety of game modes.




Hello, and welcome to this Tech-Integrated Strategy tutorial. Whether you’re teaching online or in a face-to-face setting, learning in the modern classroom often benefits from the digital mediation of educational activities. 

In this video, you’ll learn how to implement the Scoot instructional strategy using the Blooket tech tool.

Scoot is located on the K20 LEARN site under the Instructional Strategies tab. This strategy has students move from task to task to answer questions about a concept that has been taught in class.

Blooket is a free online tool that gamifies learning for quizzes, homework, and other activities through various game modes. This can be paired with Scoot in the classroom when materials and space are not available or when students are learning virtually. You can find the Blooket card on the K20 LEARN site under the Tech Tools tab. 

In the how-to section, you’ll receive hands-on instructions for how to set up a Scoot activity using Blooket.

How-To Guide

In this how-to video, we will show you how to set up and use Scoot with Blooket.

Step 1

First, open Blooket by going to and select “Login” or “Sign Up.”

Step 2

Next, select “Create” in the upper-left corner of your screen.

Step 3

For this example, we will model elementary math. To add a title, click inside the box that says, “Add a descriptive title.”

Step 4

Type “Addition Fact Scoot Practice.”

Step 5

Click inside the box that says, “Tell users about your question set.”

Step 6

Type “A review of addition facts for 2nd grade.”

Step 7

Next, select “Image Gallery” in the Cover Image box on the left side of the screen. You can also upload your own files by selecting “Upload a File.”

Step 8

In the Image Gallery, type “Math” and select the magnifying glass icon to search. Select the image you want to use. It will automatically upload as your cover image.

Step 9

You have the option to keep your Scoot private or share it publicly. It is automatically set to public. If you would like to change this setting, use the toggle switch in the Privacy Setting box. It is recommended that you keep your Blooket public in order to share it with your colleagues.

Step 10

You have many options for uploading and creating questions. For this example, we will create our questions manually, which is the default setting in the Creation Method box. Select “Create.”

Step 11

Select “+ Add Question.” 

Step 12

Each question is automatically set up for multiple choice. Click inside the box labeled “Question Text.”

Step 13

Type “12 + 9 =”.

Step 14

Click inside the orange box labeled “Answer 1.”

Step 15

Type “3.”

Step 16

Click inside the blue box labeled “Answer 2.” Each multiple choice question you create requires at least two choices. The rest are optional.

Step 17

Type “21.”

Step 18

Click inside the green box labeled “Answer 3.”

Step 19

Type “20.”

Step 20

Within the blue box, hover over the small, empty white box on the left. A check mark will appear in the box. Select the check mark to show that “21” is the correct answer. This box will turn green once you’ve selected it. 

Step 21

Select “Save” in the top-right corner of the pop-up window to save this question.

Step 22

Let’s try another type of question. Select “+ Add Question.”

Step 23

Select “Multiple Choice” in the toolbar at the top.

Step 24

Select “Typing Answer.” 

Step 25

Click inside the box labeled “Question Text.”

Step 26

Type “20 + 17 =”.

Step 27

Below “Possible Answers,” click inside the box labeled “Answer 1.”

Step 28

Type “37.” For math, you will want to use the “is exactly” answer setting. This can be changed to “contains” for other subjects where there may be multiple ways to answer a question correctly. 

Step 29

Select “Save” to save this question.

Step 30

Continue until you have added all the questions from your Scoot activity, usually one per student in the class. Once you have created all the questions, select “Save Set” below the title and description of your Blooket on the left.

You have now created a Blooket to use with your Scoot activity. Continue to the Facilitation section for tips on how to facilitate a Scoot with Blooket activity in your classroom.


By allowing students to play games and earn points, Blooket incentivizes students to answer questions about previously taught concepts. 

To start a Scoot with Blooket activity in your classroom, log in to your Blooket account and find the Blooket you created. Select “Host.”

Next, choose the game you would like students to play. Each game has slightly different objectives. For this example, select “Fishing Frenzy.”

Then, select “Host Game” on the right side of the screen.

You can change the game’s settings to have it end automatically after a certain number of minutes or after a maximum number of points has been reached. For this example, we will set a time limit. Click inside the box with the “7.”

Select “Host Now.” This will display a game code. Write the game code on the board or project your screen for the class  to view the game code.

This tech tool is best used when students are working 1-to-1 on laptops or tablets. Have students go to and enter the code on their devices. Alternatively, you may select “Copy Join Link” in the top-right corner and paste the join link into your slide deck, LMS, or whatever platform you use to share information with students. The join link will take students right into the game without requiring a code.

This step and the following three steps show what students’ screens will look like as they join the game. Once students navigate to, have them type the game code in the box. 

Students should select the white arrow to proceed to the next screen.

Next, students can enter a nickname. As the facilitator, it is up to your discretion whether students will be allowed to use school-appropriate nicknames or will be required to use their real names.

Students should select the white arrow to proceed to the next screen, where they may choose an avatar or keep the one they were assigned.

As the facilitator, your screen will show students’ names as they join the game. Once all students in the class have joined the game, select “Start.”

The game will show quick instructions and start automatically. It will run on its own until the time runs out or a student has reached the max number of points.

Once the game has ended, select “View Results” in the top-right corner of the screen.

This report provides you with information about students' answers throughout the game.

Use Cases

Scoot with Blooket is a great way for students to practice skills or share their knowledge about a concept.

While our discussion has previously focused on an elementary math example, Scoot with Blooket can be used in any classroom or content area.

For example, in a middle school ELA classroom, you can have students practice recognizing Greek and Latin roots.

In a science classroom, you could have students review for a final exam on Earth science.

If you are struggling to create an idea on your own or are short on time, Blooket has a Discover tab that serves as a community where teachers can share their Blookets.

As you can see, pairing Scoot with Blooket offers a variety of possibilities across multiple grade levels and content areas.


Scoot is an instructional strategy where students move around to answer questions about content that has already been taught.

Blooket is a free tech tool that teachers can use to increase student engagement by gamifying lessons.

Blooket is a great technology option when time or space is not available for students to move around during a Scoot activity.
