The game looks a lot like Jeop_ _ _ _ but I don't play it this way. I break the class into six groups and let the students use their notebooks and work together in small groups answering the questions one at time through the slideshow. After all the questions have been covered, the answer version is then provided so students can self assess. Each question is previewed before the answer is revealed so the teacher can call upon students or table groups. Most every question has a visual component. Please see all of the Q+A below, as well as my entire Geology Topics Unit that I offer on TpT. A game template 1-25 and preview of my earthquakes lesson are provided.

Questions 1-20 = 5pts each,
Questions 21-25 (Bonus +1pt)
Final Question - Name Parts of the Volcano 1 Point Each.
Find the Hidden Owl hiding in the PowerPoint (+1pt)
