Idioms are difficult but fun. This Jeopardy game allows students to practice guessing the meaning of an idiom from the context. Each idiom is presented in a sentence and students must state the meaning to receive their points. There are five categories: body parts, weather, love, baseball, and around the house. Each category contains 6 idioms for a total of 30. The body parts category pairs well with the book Even More Parts and the around the house category pairs well with Amelia Bedelia. Once the game is in present mode, click the point value to go to the question, click anywhere to reveal the answer, and click the arrow button to return to the game board. A PowerPoint version is also available for non-Google users.
Alternative: (Get full details on how this works in my blog post Jeopardy in Slides.) There is no way in Google Slides to make activated (or clicked) links change color. This makes it difficult to keep track of which point values have been chosen. I have discovered a workaround for this. I now use the Google Chrome extension Fullscreen Interactive Google Slides and a pile of covers (provided in the gray area near the game board). Rather than placing the slide deck in present mode, I now activate the extension to hide the slide sorter. Then, after a student/team has chosen a point value, we've clicked the link (you now have to click twice--once on the number and once on the link that pops up), and returned to the game board, I drag and drop a cover over that point value. It's not a perfect system, but it does make playing the game much easier.
