I've started reviewing our weekly reading selection using Jeopardy. Students love playing the game and enjoy the competition. They don't even realize they are learning and reviewing! The problem is that it takes me forever to build a powerpoint for each story. I recently started using a web-based program called Jeopardy Labs. The template is easy to use and I can build my Jeopardy game quickly, save it to my account and I am ready to go! You can build your own game and save it to the public file or pay for an account so you have your own files. Check out my game for Saving the Rain Forests by clicking here.
