This is a jeopardy game that I created on PowerPoint. It contains a slide that shows the different categories of jeopardy questions. They are: Elements of Literature, Figurative Language Types, Structure Techniques for Literature, Poetry and literary movements. Each section has a question that is worth $1, $2, $5, $10 and $20.
When you click on the dollar amount that the student wants to attempt, it takes you to the slide that has the answer on it (just like the real jeopardy). The student or students (if they are working in teams) must tell you what question it's answering. If they get it right you give them the amount that the question was worth, but if they get it wrong, you subtract that from the amount they have. It is fun to do this with play or monopoly money. Or you can just keep a tally of the money on the blackboard. After the student or students answer the question, you simply need to touch the space bar (this will lead you to the next slide) so they can see if they got it right or not. Then, from there, you simply click on the house button to go back to the "home page" or the page where the next student can select a question. It is a fun way to do review, to help them prepare for a test or to use as a team building activity. ENJOY!
