Hi! This is a great interactive PowerPoint game which ties in nicely to your unit study of "The Age of Jackson". I used this with my 8th grade American History class, and it was very well-received...and fun!! It made for an effective and engaging review before our chapter test.
**The questions were designed to coordinate with the information in chapter 10 from our 8th grade social studies textbook, America: History of Our Nation by Pearson...but the questions are pretty much what I would think are "standard" as far as any middle school or 9th/10th grade study of American History and the Age of Jackson. Of course, you can always edit this to fit your needs, too!
The categories for this game are Vocabulary, Famous Names 1, Famous Names 2, "Action Jackson", and Grab Bag. (Miscellaneous content-related questions.) There is also a Final Jeopardy question that students can write and /or discuss, if you'd like. As is, the game should take between 30-45 min.
The best part is that you can customize this game to fit your needs. Don't need a particular question or category? Change it to what works best for you!
This works very well when used with a projector and/or SMART board. Have fun, and please look at my other items. :) Like my products? Please rate me. :) Thanks, and enjoy!
