2 How to make this Jeopardy game work for your topic  Set up your teams and have them sit together.  Explain the ground rules  Assign a score keeper who will watch to see which team raises their hand first for each question and they will also keep track of what team wins what on the board or flip chart.  When you’re ready to play the game, open that presentation and then hit F5 to put it into the “SHOW mode.

3 JEOPARDY GROUND RULES  Raise your hand when you want to answer. I will call upon the first hand I see raised. You get five seconds to answer.  You get one answer; you cannot change or modify it after you have given it.  If the first team to answer gets it wrong, they get that score deducted from their total and then the second team that raised their hand gets a chance to answer.

4 JEOPARDY GROUND RULES  One of the questions will read “DOUBLE JEOPARDY”. This just means that this question is worth twice what it is listed for.  When all questions are complete you are ready to play “Final jeopardy”. Before you see the question each team must write down how much you want to wager.  After the question is shown, write down your answer. You cannot change your wager $$ after you see the question.  When the music stops each team reveals what their wager was and their answer.
