Product Description
I made these 33 jeopardy questions as a review activity for chapter 2 of the McDougal Littell textbook The Americans, but you can use them with any curriculum on colonial America.

I cut out the questions separately and pasted them onto flashcards with point values on the back to make it seem like a real game of jeopardy, but you can use them however you want!

The questions are grouped into subcategories of Pilgrims, Jamestown, the Spanish Conquistadors, and The Middle Colonies.

Some of the jeopardy questions have additional bonus questions to help students delve deeper into the material.

Sample Questions:
