Most of us have seen and probably used the Power Point Presentation templates that are the Jeopardy review game. Most of us have probably also ran into problems with them (Links from slide to slide don't always work) or don't have the time to sort through all those slides to add the answers and questions.
Well, now there is a new way to get Jeopardy for your classroom. Jeopardy Labs has created the Jeopardy game online. Once you have created your game it gives you a link to a website which you then open in your classroom and play with your students. You can add up to 10 teams and adjust their points based on their answer. So it gives you complete control over the review.
If you don't feel like making a game, then browse through the ones that have already been created and see if there is one that applies to your curriculum. One problem you will see is that there are quite a few that are unfinished. So, even though they are on there, it will be tough for you to find any that you can use.
There are no fees, no registration, and no Power Point involved. Everything is on the website. It is very user friendly. If you create one, or find one that is useful, please come back and comment on this post to share it with other teachers. Be sure to include what content it covers.
