Jeopardy: Make Your Own

One of our themes for Summer Fun Camp 2016 is Game Shows. 

Check out our Pinterest Page for more of our Summer Fun Camp Themes.

For years, we have created Jeopardy games that we use with kids. We pick categories, and then create answers and questions - you know the game - no need for us to explain the format and rules.

Recently we created a Jeopardy game for Family Events. The kids and parents separated into teams and competed against each other to win prizes.  To sneak in a little education, we used one category that contained Children's Choice facts that we wanted parents to learn/know. We are including the categories, questions, and answers (below). Feel free to replicate!

We have also created a functional electronic Jeopardy game that uses Power Point. Click here to download the template, then just make your own edits to personalize the game for your organization.
