I needed a fun end-of-the-year activity for my social skills group, so I decided to create this Jeopardy game.
This packet contains the materials to make a social skills-themed Jeopardy / Quiz game to use in speech therapy or counseling sessions. The difficulty level of the questions is probably best suited for upper elementary / lower middle school groups. I will be playing this with my 1st-3rd graders, knowing that there will likely be several questions that are challenging (it makes for good teaching opportunities).
The questions are designed in such a way that the questions get increasingly difficult with the higher point values.
-Cover page / Instructions
-5 category headers (Manners, Perspective Taking, Problem Solving, Emotions, Pot Luck)
-5 question cards for each category (25 questions total)
-25 color-coded point cards
You will also need: 25 8x5 inch index cards, glue
1.Cut out all of the question cards, point cards, and headers.
2.Glue the question cards onto index cards. On the opposite side of each card, glue the corresponding color-coded point value.
3.Glue the headers onto construction paper or print onto card stock.
1.Pin the headers onto your wall / tape on your whiteboard.
2.Underneath each header, place the question cards, with the point values facing the room.
1. Divide students into teams (I usually have two teams).
2.On their turn, a team gets to decide on a category and point value. The question is read out loud. If the team answers correctly, the team gets the points. If the answer is incorrect, the other team gets a shot. Teams take turns picking questions.
3. The star cards are “Double Jeopardy” cards and worth double the amount on the front.
4.The team with the most points wins.
This game is great for promoting cooperative skills while students practice their knowledge of social situations! Granted, it takes some time to put the game together, but my students love Jeopardy, which makes it so worth it :)!
For some pointers of how to implement this game in the classroom, see my Blog post:
I also have some language & articulation Jeopardy games in my store, if you are interested!
