Play this game with your Spanish 1 students to practice the vocab and skills found in Chapter 3B of Realidades 1. This is an interactive game in a Power Point that you can project from your computer and play on the screen or share with your students for them to play in small groups. This version of the game has two slides with vosotros clues. If you need the version without vosotros, please click here: Jeopardy 3B sin vosotros
The game has five categories with four clues each. The clues get more difficult as the money amounts increase. I use as much of the vocab from the chapter as I can in context. The game has hyperlinks from the home slide to each of the clue slides, from the clue slides to their answers, and from answer slides back to the home slide. When you click on the dollar amount link from the home slide, the color of the dollar amount will change so that everyone can see that the clue has already been picked. If you want to play the game more than once, close and reopen the file in order to make the money amount colors reset back to the "unpicked" color. You'll have to keep the time limits for the kids to answer and keep score, but the game does the rest. I delete some slides for the preview in order to discourage plagiarism, but please look at it--it'll give you a good idea of what the game looks like.
The categories include:
-La Comida en Contexto Has food vocab in sentences. For example: ¿Cómo se dice “The rice is horrible”? for $600
-Los Verbos Has clues about the verbs on the Repaso page. For example: Conjugate “caminar” for “tú” and “ustedes”. for $400
-Opiniones Has clues about giving your opinion using "preferir," "creo que," etc. For example: ¿Cómo se dice “Do you prefer the fish or the steak?”? for $800
-Vocabulario Has some pictures of food vocab, as well as one slide that asks for "why," "because," and "something."
-Sorpresa Has a variety of clues that cover vocab I didn't have room for in the other categories. For example: If you want to say that the tomatoes are tasty, how do you write the adjective “sabroso/a” so that it agrees with the noun? for $200
When I've played Jeopardy-type games with my classes, I've put them into groups of 4-5. I go around the room in a certain order and call on groups to choose a clue. They have a time limit to answer, and if they get it wrong or don't get it in time, the next group in the order can steal it. If the second group can't steal it right away, the next group can steal, etc. This helps to keep everyone engaged because they might get to steal. You can do it whole-class with three larger groups or with groups of 3-4 where each group has its own laptop. The game can be played in a variety of ways--whatever works for you and your kids!
