Using a Jeopardy Review
A few years ago, I stumbled upon a fantastic site for creating Jeopardy games. It's called Jeopardy Labs. I absolutely love it because my students are ECSTATIC when we get to play one in preparation for an upcoming test.
We recently finished our unit on The Civil War, so I made a Jeopardy review with questions that address most of the key standards in our curriculum. You can project the game onto a Smart Board or Promethean Board and choose any number of teams you have. As you go through each question and point value, you can either add or subtract the points, depending on who answers the question correctly. You click on a + or - and the score automatically changes so that you don't have to write it down at all. It's a great engaging way to do a review with your kids, and you can even give them the link to it so that they can practice at home with their family or friends.
Definitely check it out and give it a try! You will love it!
