Students today learn best by manipulating and visualizing content. Although a staple in the review game strategies, this Jeopardy game is very different.
Three character contestants
Three rounds, 8 categories, 40 total questions, final Jeopardy
Interactive scoring (no writing necessary! Type right in the screen below the character!)
Interactive Double Jeopardy
Multiple Final Jeopardy for multiple classes
Return buttons to send the teacher back to scores
Dollars grey out after being clicked (no crossing numbers out!)
I have used this same template for several units in our curriculum. Also serving as the focus of my master's thesis, I have seen significant improvement in overall test scores when I use the Jeopardy game. Often, the students write in the class reviews that this was the most helpful way to review.
Do not save the file with new numbers in the money category. For some reason, errors have resulted if this is done.
To remove grey numbers and return to a new game: Close and reopen the file again.
