Phrasal verbs can be very difficult for ESL students (ELLs). The way adding a particle can change the meaning of a verb makes phrasal verbs especially difficult. Then phrasal verbs also have multiple meanings as well!
This Jeopardy game has two rounds. In the first round students choose a verb and a point value. The “question” then gives them a particle to add to the verb. Their task is to define the phrasal verb. When multiple definitions are possible, I tried to include several of them, but ultimately I tell students that I will be the final judge and if an answer is given that I deem correct, but is not on the slide, points will still be given. In the second round students again choose a verb and a point value. The “question” then gives them a definition. Their task is to give the complete phrasal verb (chosen verb + participle).
Each slide is labeled with the column number and point value so if you, like me, forget how many points a question is worth, the value is in the upper left hand corner.
To use, place the slide deck in present mode (push "Present" at the top right of the screen). Further directions for where to click are given on slide one of the file.
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.
If you prefer a PowerPoint file, one is available as Phrasal Verb Jeopardy.
