Another Jeopardy Game!

Need a quick way to review for a test or end of the year final???
Super Teacher Tools is a GREAT site!  I'm just posting about Jeopardy, but if you visit the site, I encourage you to check out all the great resources there.
Now, let's get to Jeopardy! This is an online (or offline) way to play jeopardy with your students.  I used this with a 3rd grade class and the students LOVED it! Then, the teacher had the students create a game with a partner and host their game with the class.  So, it's so simple, even a 3rd grader can create one!!!
This is a Flash based game that saves as a text file, so you can load any game you create and play it any time.  Click here to see a sample game.
Basically, you click make a new game link enter the question and answers, save it by clicking Create Game File link that the bottom of the page and it's ready to go!
There are more detailed directions on the site, but I think you should be able to use it without problems.

Hi Cindy,

Saw your post about this on your Twitter account. Thanks for this - it is a great tool to have up your sleeve and the advantage is that once made you can use it year after year.

On a similar vein take a look at what2learn (.com) which is a free resource which has a good range of easy to use game generators. The advantage of this system is it instantly creates an online version of your game, you can embed your game in your own blog or VLE, you can embed it in PowerPoint, etc. It even lets you see the scores your students get in your games making it really useful for homework and assessment. It has thousands of ready-made games if you don't want to make your own.
