From Thinking About Science: The Human Body
What’s the Question? is similar to the TV show “Jeopardy” in that the information is given in the form of the statement and the student responses are in the form of questions. The questions in Part 1 are worth 5 points each, and those in Part II are worth 10 points each.
Divide the class into teams of 4 or 5 students. The teacher may act as leader, or you may want to choose a student leader. The leader asks the first group a question from Part I. Whoever raises his or her hand first gets to answer. If the student answers correctly, 5 points are added to the team total. If the student answers incorrectly, 5 points are deducted. If no one wants to answer, the leader gives the correct answer and the total remains the same. If a team does not give a correct answer, the same question is then asked to the next group. If no group gets it right, the leader gives the correct answer.
When all the questions from Part I have been completed, the same rules are followed for Part II.
