URI Jeopardy




List of questions with dollar amounts assigned to them

Jeopardy board (write on board the categories and dollar amounts under each so that you can cross them off as you go)

Score sheet


To familiarize students with URI          


Draw your Jeopardy board on the chalk/dry-erase board.  Split students into three groups.  Play Jeopardy-just like on the T.V. show.  At the end tally the scores and maybe give a prize.

Check out these additional Sample Jeopardy Questions also!


These categories can be placed in any order you want and either in the first round or second round, which is Jeopardy and Double Jeopardy, respectively.  In the Jeopardy round the dollar values are 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500.  In the Double Jeopardy round the dollar values are doubled to 200, 400, 600, 800, and 1000.  Different questions can always be substituted.
