To summarize the major events in the establishment of the Thirteen Colonies.
2 class periods
Have the students read about the founding of the Thirteen Colonies on pages 20A - 20C. Give them time to underline or highlight the key words, names, terms, and ideas. Class members can use this information during the playing of the game JEOPARDY.
Go over the game rules with the students. Put the JEOPARDY categories on the board and begin. (Note: This lesson includes a Game 1 and Game 2.)
Each time my students have walked into class and seen JEOPARDY categories on the board, they get excited. The competition in these games make social studies class a lot of fun.
I use several JEOPARDY games during the school year to help students learn.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
