Materials Required: Newsprint, colored markers, review questions
Activity Time: one class period
Concepts Taught: Review Material for Chapter, Unit Tests

Divide students into groups of 2-5 students. Give each group a piece of newsprint, and colored marker for each student. Inform students of categories for Jeopardy and rules of game. I usually insist students answer lower point values in each category first to get the best review. Students in each group write answers to ALL questions and the teacher circulates quickly around the room to check answers and award points. It helps to have a student keep score. This is a great way to get everyone involved in a review lesson rather than just a few students.
