Description

Take ELA review days from dull to dazzling with this Jeopardy-style classroom game! This highly engaging Genres Game Show PowerPoint activity makes the skill of determining the genre of a paragraph something that students are EXCITED to do! 

My class CHEERS when they see this game in the plans. Students will be listening to your every word as they work hard to win a point for their team.  It’s a win-win for you and your students: kids will have FUN and be challenged to use higher-level thinking skills as they move their way through the scaffolded questions and categories!

*Check out the Game Show PowerPoint Video to see how it works! 

Game Features

  • 25 Question Slides: various questions reviewing a variety of short passages using the different genres and students need to determine which one
  • 25 Answer Slides: answers to the 25 question slides that link from each question to the answer
  • Game Board Slide: all question categories and amounts (click to go to a question and amounts will disappear as they are used)
  • Scoreboard Slide: track points for each team with a WORKING SCOREBOARD!
  • Buttons on EVERY SLIDE that will take you back to the game board or scoreboard
  • Reset Page buttons on the scoreboard and game board

Game Categories and Questions

  • NONFICTION GENRES: students are given paragraph written using a nonfiction genre and students must supply which genre is being used
  • FICTION GENRES: students are given paragraph written using a fiction genre and students must supply which genre is being used
  • WHICH GENRE?: students are given paragraphs with four genre options and students must determine which is correct
  • THIS OR THAT?: students are given paragraphs and two choices between genres and students must determine which is correct
  • MIXED BAG: students are given a variety of questions from all categories above

☆ Options for Use

I play this game a little differently. I like to have all students ENGAGED and REVIEWING every question.  So, I do this by having each team answer every question. Here’s how it goes:

  1. Divide students into groups of up to six teams.
  2. One team chooses the category and amount. EVERYONE answers the questions with their groups and records their answer on their whiteboards. 
  3. The team whose turn it is shows me their answer. If correct, I award them the points. If incorrect, any team that has the correct answer can go for the steal and get the points for that question. 
  4. Then the next team gets to choose the category and points.

☆ PLEASE NOTE
