Product Description
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. There is also a Final Jeopardy question. This game covers the basic background story of The Odyssey with a focus on the stories of Calypso, the Cyclops, Circe, and Odysseus’s return to Ithaca.

The preview only contains the clues/slides for the $100 questions.

UPDATE - AUGUST 2016
I updated the game to PowerPoint 2013, so it should work better with most computers. I also added a couple of extra slides--a blank template for the 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.


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, and then click on the answer to take you back to the game board. 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.)

I divide my class into groups of three or four to play. Any one in the group can answer the question. I have my kids shout out their own name if they think they know the answer, that way it's a little easier for me to distinguish who was first. I have another student helper who keeps score on the board and he/she helps me to choose the right student. I don't require answers in the form of a question, but you certainly could. I do deduct points/$ for wrong answers and play the daily double/final jeopardy just like they do on the show.
