Jeopardy- Waagstuk-ジェパディ- Va banque

Jeopardy is a television game show/quiz competition in which contestants are presented with general knowledge clues in the form of answers, and must phrase their responses in the form of questions.


As a lesson starter or activity write down a question in one of the home languages of your students and the answer in English. The students have to work out the correct question. In this case: “What is the largest desert in the world?”

If you don’t speak that language just translate it in google translate. If it is wrong the student who speaks that language can correct it for you.

Following example could be used as a an intro on the topic of dry worlds in Geography

To make it more challenging you could use multiple choice answers.


or work out an entire mathematical problem.


If you have a bit more time, you could create a whole revision quiz like this on Kahoot and include all of your students’ home languages.
