BRIEF OUTLINE: A Jeopardy quiz game about winter, holidays, New Year's Eve, and Christmas.





  1. Draw a 5x6 grid on the board and write the topics above every column and numbers 10-50 in every box (see attachment).
  2. Have students sit in a similar shape like the grid, decide teams by line.
  3. Have students in the first row stand up, one of them picks a question (for example, "Winter 30").
  4. You ask the question, the fastest (standing) student to raise the hand can answer. If correct, the team gets that amount of points ("x2" questions have double points. It's more fun to reveal that after they answer correctly).
  5. Second row stands up and a student from next team chooses a question and repeat.



  • Of course you can adjust and change the questions, topics and points any way you like
  • give every student only one chance to answer for each question, so they won`t keep their hands up and answer random things; if only a student who already answered wrongly seems to know after a while, give them a second chance after a short countdown, but give only half the points if correct
  • If you want to try the Christmas Jeopardy Power Point Edition it is pretty intuitive to operate. A few questions have been changed from the original however.



  • This game can be used for 1st and 2nd year students, but maybe 3rd year as well for fun.
  • If using the Christmas Jeopardy Power Point Edition make sure you navigate through it and get a feel for it before teaching it. Also if your TV has no volume be sure to turn your laptop up to full so the class can hear the game SFX.



  • Check out the explanation attachment for details on the questions.
  • Print out the "question papers" attachment on B4 or A3 papers and fold them horizontally in the middle.
