game, geography, jeopardy, punctuation, question, review, vocabulary
Use this activity to help students review material before a test or simply as a fun time-filler. The activity, based on the TV game show Jeopardy, can be used to review material in any subject and across the grades. The teacher states an "answer" and students write the correct question. As on the TV game, students' responses must be in the form of questions!
Students earn 10 points for each correct answer. You might assign different point values based on the difficulty of the question. Students can keep their own scores or a scorekeeper can be appointed. The scorekeeper could put a checkmark next to each student's name on a class list each time the student responds correctly. At the end of the game, the student with the most checkmarks is declared the winner.
This game can be adapted to almost any area of the curriculum. Following are three ideas for using Whiteboard Jeopardy across the curriculum:
The student(s) with the highest score(s) might earn a prize, such as a pass good for a night of no homework or 5 extra points on the next quiz or test.
