This power point contains a twenty question jeopardy game that is based on the California State Standard for History 7.1. Attention is given to vocabulary, such as Justinian, the Hagia Sophia, Constantinople, Constantine. Key concepts include the factors in the decline and fall of the western empire and how the eastern empire was unique. Questions can be easily modified to suit your individual curriculum.
The format is easy to follow. One click brings up the game board. Then click on the point value to access the question. Finally click on the home icon to return to the game board.
I divide the class up into five or six groups of five or six students. Small white boards and white board markers are distributed to each group and I have one student keep score on the board at the front of the class.
The kids love the competition!
