Each team takes turns to pick one of the five categories and a point value for their question. The teacher will then click on the point value that matches the question the team chose.

Answering Questions

The students discuss the correct answer. Sometimes, your teacher might set a time limit to make it more challenging.

Scoring Points

If a team gets the answer right, they win points! The teacher can add points to the team’s score by using the scoreboard in the PowerPoint. You can find the scoreboard on slide 67.

The Daily Double

There’s a special question called the “Daily Double” hidden on slide 21. This question lets you bet points before you see the question. If you get it right, you win the points you bet. But be careful, if you get it wrong, you lose those points!

The Final Question

At the end of the game, there’s one last question – the Final Question. Each team writes down how many points they want to bet and their answer on a piece of paper. If they get it right, they win those points. If not, they lose them. The team with the most points at the end is the winner!

Why Is Jeopardy Good for Students?

Jeopardy is a great game for students for several reasons:

Learning While Having Fun

Jeopardy makes learning exciting. It turns lessons into a game, which means students can have fun while they’re learning new things. When students enjoy what they’re doing, they’re more likely to remember the information.

Encouraging Teamwork

When students play Jeopardy in teams, they learn to work together. They discuss answers and strategies, which helps them develop teamwork and communication skills.

Jeopardy gives students a chance to show what they know. When they answer questions correctly, it boosts their confidence. Even when they get an answer wrong, they learn from their mistakes, which is a big part of learning.

Engaging Different Learning Styles

Jeopardy can include questions that appeal to different types of learners. Some students might be good at remembering facts (like history dates), while others might be better at solving problems (like math puzzles). This means all kinds of learners can participate and do well.

Reviewing and Reinforcing Knowledge

Jeopardy is a great way to review what’s been taught in class. It helps reinforce the lessons, making it easier for students to remember important information.

Time Management Skills

Since there’s often a time limit to answer each question, Jeopardy helps students develop quick thinking and time management skills.

Jeopardy introduces students to friendly competition. It’s a safe and fun way for them to compete with each other while also cheering for their classmates.

In short, the Jeopardy game is fun for any grade level and subject. It is an interactive learning tool that helps students in many different ways. It makes the classroom more engaging and helps students learn important skills while they’re having a great time!
