OUTLINE: A neat, interactive Jeopardy quiz game using power point. This version is Halloween themed, but you can use it as a template for any sort of questions. Enjoy!





  1. Introduce the lesson for the day, and give a little introduction on Halloween in America.
  2. Test the students knowledge of Halloween vocabulary, flashcards will work fine for this.
  3. Teach the students vocabulary words that they will need that they don't know if necessary.
  4. Pick teams and separate the students into groups.
  5. Once you pick the teams (and they pick their names), have them do Rock, Paper, Scissors to see which team goes first.
  6. They will pick a question, and any team can answer it. The first to "buzz in" (if you have buzzers) or the first hand you see raised can answer. If its wrong, then another team can steal. Standard Jeopardy rules. With this version, however, you don't have to answer in the form of a question. Multiple choice only



  • Let them pick their own names when they make groups. They love making up team names, especially random English words. Team Potato was apparently funnier than Robin Williams dressed as an old woman.


  • Make sure they answer in comlpete sentences."It is called Frankenstein!", for example. They will be tempted to just say "C!" since it is set up in multiple choice but stop that nonsense. No one learns anything that way.



  •  Make SURE you flip through all the slides. A few of them have places for your names or other teachers names.
  •  Some of the pictures are somewhat graphic. You can explain that Halloween is suposed to be a little gory, or use your own judgement and swap out the images you find offensive.
