Provide a fantastic review for your students with these three jeopardy review games on biochemistry, organic compounds, and the chemistry of life. Students love to review in a competitive game format. In these games students will review the chemistry and biochemistry concepts typically found at the beginning of any traditional Biology I textbook. Detailed list of concepts can be found below.

Suitable for Biology and Life Science Students in Grades 9 and up!

Each game has 6 categories and each category has 5 questions. This gives you a total of 90 review questions on biochemistry. A "Teacher Guide" is also included with instructions on how to play the games.

I use these review games when teaching my unit on biochemistry to first year biology students.


This powerpoint jeopardy game consists of 63 slides. The game is limited to 30 questions, but the game is editable. Simply delete some of my questions and add some of your own to make this review game more applicable to your students.

The topics covered include the following:

  • The Nature of Matter: Atoms, subatomic particles, mass and charges of the subatomic particles.
  • Elements: Definitions, isotopes, radioactive isotopes, practical uses of radioactive isotopes, the nature of compounds.
  • Chemical Bonds: Definitions and examples of ionic and covalent bonds, polar molecules, polar covalent bonds, nonpolar covalent bonds.
