to give this game a try with a free download of the entire game.**
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. It's a great way to get kids to see connections between word parts and the definitions of English words.
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. (This update using PowerPoint 2013 should work correctly in all versions of PowerPoint—download and try Word Part Jeopardy 1—see link above—to make sure it works on your computer!)
I’ve been playing this game for years and over time I’ve made a few adjustments. This update (April 2014) includes a couple of my improvements: an answer key, a blank game board for students to fill in as they play the game (keeps everyone involved!), and a single-page handout that includes all of the definitions used in the game (in case you want to use the game as part of a unit of study).
The Preview File shows the actual game board for this version so that you can see the word parts that are included in Game #2.
