BRIEF OUTLINE: This is a team battle quiz in the style of Jeopardy.  The quiz board has 7 categories and 5 levels of difficulty for each category. 





  1. Divide the class into about 3 to 5 teams and have them choose names.
  2. Have them choose their team order.  (Junban)
  3. Have the first player for each team decide the question rotation by janken (rock, paper, scissors) or any method you enjoy.  It may cut down on time to just go from left to right. (Team 1, team 2, team 3...)
  4. Explain that the higher the question number is, the harder the question.  1 is easy.  5 is hard. 
  5. The first team will choose a category and a number.  Then, ask the team the appropriate question.  It is good to give them time limits.  I like 30 seconds.
  6. If the students answers correctly within the time limit, they are given point value chosen from the board. 
  7. Each team is also given the dice after attempting to answer a question.  The number they roll is how many points their team receives (in addition to the points for getting a correct answer).  The dice is rolled whether or not they answered correctly. 
  8. After the team's score has been recorded, move on to the next team. 
  9. Continue until all categories are used or you run out of time.
  10. Add up all the points and declare a winner.  I always make this a somewhat comical event by attempting to sing, 'And youuuu are the champions, my friends. And youuuuu'll keep on fighting till the end. [BWAH-BWAH-BWAHHH]'



  • You can allow the teams to answer as a team or have the team members answer individually. 



  • Ask your JTE to help you keep track of the score.  I like to have the score board to the left of the game board so that everyone can see.  
  • Make copies of the questions from the board for all of the students.  At the end of the game, hand it out for a nice review sheet.  
  • I like to use a 'Pin Pon Bu' when the students answer.  It is a small toy that makes a 'pin pon' and 'buuu' sounds for correct and incorrect answers.
