Are you? Do you? Can you? Jeopardy

Follows New Horizon 1 Unit 1. Students create "Are you? Do you? Can you?" questions while playing jeopardy.

This game is exactly like jeopardy. For most of the categories, the students will read a statement and create a question to match.

For example:

Statement: "No, I can't swim."

Question students write: "Can you swim?"

One section allows the students to create questions on their own.

For example:

Statement: "Yes, I am."

Question students can write: "Are you from America?"

Students should be split into teams. Each team should have a board to write down their questions. A time limit can be added to make the game progress quicker.

*I used vocab directly from Unit 1 for the 500 point questions (so, just, every, fan...). Words like "chess" may have to be explained, but they should know the vocabulary used on the board otherwise.

Update: I played Jeopardy with my 7th graders today as review, and they did super well and had fun. I gave out zero points for incorrect spelling or really close answers, negative for wrong answers, and positive for correct answers. They got the hang of it really quickly. At first, however, it started out a bit slow as they wanted to choose all the harder questions for more points. I also accepted answers that could also work as questions for the statements. They were able to get through over half the board in 40 mins.
