Help your students review F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby
with a fun, yet challenging overview of the whole novel.
This is a realistic-looking version of Jeopardy using PowerPoint. It includes a round of regular Jeopardy with five categories, five questions each, and one daily double. A second round of Double Jeopardy includes 25 more questions about The Great Gatsby
Ten Question Categories Include
The Roaring 20s
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
All in the Family
Man of Mystery
Signs and Symbols
There is also a Final Jeopardy question. This game covers all of The Great Gatsby
, Fitzgerald’s life, and the 1920’s. Some questions focus on small details, but the game as a whole provides a very good review of the novel.
In addition to the game, the file includes blank templates for each game board that can be used to keep the whole class invovled. Have students write down their answers on the blank sheets and then you can give them a participation grade. I also added summary sheets that include all the questions (share these with students after the game for further review!) and an answer key.
The preview only contains the clues/slides for the $100 questions. The full version includes more sounds and animation as the board comes together and really looks good!
It's easy to play--the slides are all linked so you can click anywhere on the game board and it will take you to the right clue. When you're ready to check the answer, click near the words on the screen, and then click on the answer word(s) to take you back to the game board. (The text boxes are the links, so you have to click within them to advance the slides correctly; try to always click on the main text of the slide and you won't have any problems.) On the game board, dollar values for questions you've already answered turn blue, so you'll know which ones are still available. (Note: As of January 2018, neither Google Slides nor PowerPoint Online support the color-change feature; students can track the used questions manually on their worksheets.)
