Raise your hand if your students love playing Jeopardy in class? Well, if you have used a Jeopardy PowerPoint template for review in your classroom, you know students love it! The best part of the Jeopardy template you have is that it is customizable and you can use it for any subject matter. In other words, you can “make it your own!” Another way to find these fun, interactive Jeopardy Powerpoint games is to search online for them. I just went on Google and typed in “Jeopardy Powerpoint Games,” about 128,000 results showed up, which sure is bunch of sites that have them! Wouldn’t it be great if there was one source for searching for these Jeopardy games for education?
Well, look no further than Jeopardy Labs . In the custom search field, just type your subject or topic you want. I pretty much guarantee you will find whatever you want! For example, right now my grade level is focusing on the standard about word origins, antonyms, synonyms, prefixes, synonyms, and derivations. So, I searched for “word origins,” which resulted in over 1,000 different matches. You will then need to browse through them and find what you are looking for. Once you find the game you want, click on it and it will bring you to another page. On this page you have a couple of options – Start, Edit, Download, and Share. Before you start, select how many teams you will have competing and click start. Then, the game page opens and you can begin. Another useful feature is the Download feature, where you can download and save the game to your computer. It will save as an .html file and can be opened up in any web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.) – which means that once it’s saved on your computer, you can launch it without being connected to the internet.
Please take a look and give Jeopardy Labs a try with your students – I guarantee they will love playing Jeopardy against each other, or whole class with your interactive whiteboard. You can enjoy being Alex Trebek!
I would love to hear back from you when you use this web tool or if you have a question about it.
