Have fun reviewing your students for the unit test with this PowerPoint, Jeopardy-Style Review Game.

Topic Covered: DNA and Replication

My students love to review using this Jeopardy Powerpoint review game. I have found that my students pay far greater attention to the review when it is in a competitive game format.

PLEASE NOTE: This game can be purchased in the following two bundled products:
DNA, RNA Protein Synthesis Jeopardy Game Bundle: Set of Three Games
DNA, RNA, and Protein Synthesis Complete Unit Plan.

This review game has 6 categories with 5 questions in each category, for a total of 30 questions. This game covers the topic of DNA only. It does not include RNA or protein synthesis. The questions cover the basic structure of DNA and its replication. More specifically:
1. History of DNA Studies: Early concepts about genes, roles played by genes, Watson and Crick.
3. DNA nucleotides and their composition, purines, pyrimidines, how nucleotides are joined to one another.
4. The Watson and Crick model of DNA, the double helix, the base pairing rules, DNA as a carrier of information.
5. Replication of DNA: Steps in replication, DNA polymerase, hydrogen bonds, origins of replication, replication forks, complimentary strands, helicase.
6. Proofreading and repairing DNA: the role of polymerases, nucleases, and ligases.
7. Mutations

This powerpoint jeopardy game consists of 63 slides. The game is limited to 30 questions. For this topic, there are many more possible questions that could be asked. If would be very easy for you to delete some of my questions and add some of your own to make this review game more applicable to your students.
