This is a fun review game for American History class. The content covers Early American History up through the Civil War. Questions are given in 5 categories, just like Jeopardy. Categories include Native Americans, The Colonists, American Revolution, The Constitution, and The Civil War.
You could use this as a cumulative review for US History (early America to 1865) or as a midterm review for a US History course. I have students work in teams to play this game, and designate one student to be scorekeeper. Lower valued questions are easier, while the heavily weighted ones will be harder. It's probably a good idea to give teams a time limit for a question. When all the questions are answers, students will wager their points in final jeopardy, just like the show.
