HOW I USE THIS LESSON:
I love Fred Rogers’ quote that, "for children, play is serious learning." As the research says, creative play really is the language of childhood. No matter the topic covered, I have found that as long as the lesson involves a bit of art, role-playing, games, and some freedom of movement, students are engaged.

Thus, the creation of Jeopardy...with a twist. "With a twist" because this game is a variation of the popular game show known as Jeopardy! Rather than players answering with questions, in this game they answer through acting, drawing, imagining, taking risks, and problem solving as a team.

I hope that your students enjoy this activity, having serious fun learning!
