There are a couple of factors that brought about a game of Jeopardy instead of something more fun. My English Classroom is being remodeled right now (my school has been given 60 million won to update it), so I no longer teach half classes of 20 in my room. Instead, I have to go to every individual class myself and teach a full class of 40. So, to keep everyone in their chairs and still entertained, I thought a game of Jeopardy would be fun. The other factor coming into play today is that the students begin their final exams on Tuesday, so a full review of this semester’s material would be of use to them. So, here’s a Jeopardy gameboard which I made from scratch. Click on any amount and it will take you to a slide with a question. Click on the question and the answer will pop up. Click anywhere else on the screen and you’ll be brought back to the money grid. This Jeopardy board comes in two flavors, one for each level, with questions pertinent to that level.
Level 1 is available in either Mac Format or PC format, while Lesson 2 is available in both Mac format and PC format as well. Even if you’re not teaching those levels, the template is still usable, so you can tweak the questions as you please.
If you do decide to use it, please let us know how it works! Oh, and if you really liked this lesson, and it totally made your job and life easier, then – by all means – feel free to click this button here:
