# Playing Jeopardy To Increase Math Vocabulary as a Whole Class and in a Guided Math Group

THIS IS SO COOL!

PLAY MATH JEOPARDY WITH YOUR STUDENTS! GO HERE! (They open up as powerpoints. So, show them just like a regular powerpoint.)

AND THIS SITE HAS A BLANK TEMPLATE TO MAKE YOUR OWN JEOPARDY GAME WITH YOUR VOCABULARY! YOU HAVE TO OPEN ALL THESE FILES TO DO IT.

*This is the reference for this site…Hardin SD

I would use these posters to get some ideas for the jeopardy words. I would also cut these up and have the students play concentration and go fish.

Hi Dr.Nicki,

There is no shortage of fun or motivation for engaging students with these games. Now that we are approaching our state test soon, these will provide a teachers with an alternative to a boring paper and pencil review. I am thinking of creating a game for Pi Day!! I wonder if there are enough “circle” questions for a Jeopardy game?
