Spice up your review for the unit test on the "Phylum Cnidaria" using a fun game format! My students love to review using these Jeopardy-style Powerpoint review games. I have found that my students pay far greater attention to the review when it is in a competitive game format. Review games increase student participation and engagement. This results in a high quality and very productive review session for all students.

This resource contains two Jeopardy-style games for the phylum Cnidaria.

  • Game 1 has 6 categories and 30 questions.
  • Game 2 has 6 categories and 30 questions.
  • The two games should be used together to create a thorough review of the phylum Cnidaria.
  • The questions are editable allowing you to make the game a perfect fit for your students.
  • This resource includes a Teacher Guide with directions for play.

These games were written to accompany my Phylum Cnidaria PowerPoint and Notes set, but can easily and appropriately be used with any unit on the phylum Cnidaria.

This resource consists of 2 review games and covers all of the vocabulary and concepts that you would expect to find about this phylum in a typical first year biology textbook. See detailed list below.

Topics covered in the two games include:

  • Introduction to Cnidarians: List of animals belonging to Phylum Cnidaria, germ layers of cnidarians, radial symmetry, cnidocytes.
  • The Cnidarian Body Plan: Comparison of medusa and polyp body plans, gastrodermis and gastrovascular cavity. Students will compare structures of the medusa and the polyp, including the mouth, tentacles, epidermis, gastrodermis, mesoglea, and gastrovascular cavity.
  • Feeding and Defense in Cnidarian: Cnidocytes and nematocysts, method of food-getting.
  • Cnidarian Nervous System: The nerve net and how it functions.
  • Cnidarian Respiration, Circulation, and Excretion
  • Classification of Cnidarians: Includes 4 classes of cnidarians – Hydrozoa, Cubozoa, Scyphozoa, and Anthozoa.
  • Class Hydrozoa: Includes details of the freshwater hydra and the Portuguese man-of-war. Students will label a drawing of the hydra that includes tentacles, mouth, epidermis, gastrodermis, mesoglea, bud, base, gastrovascular cavity, testes, sperm, ovary, and egg. Asexual and sexual reproduction of hydra is covered.
  • Class Cubozoa: The box jellies.
  • Class Scyphozoa: Students will answer questions about jellyfish anatomy and the jellyfish life cycle.
  • Class Anthozoa: Includes details on sea anemones, the mutualistic relationship between anemones and clownfish, details about corals, and the mutualistic relationship between corals and the algae that live within them.
  • Ecology of the Corals: Reasons why corals are important to marine ecosystems, the impact of human activities on coral reefs, and coral bleaching.

This game was written with a typical biology I class in mind. It can easily be edited to make the questions more simple, more advanced, or to add questions of your own.

Please Note: This game is in reverse format from a normal Jeopardy game. This games asks a question, and the student supplies the answer. I have found that the normal Jeopardy format is a bit confusing to my students. This format ensures a better review before a test.
