Quiz Questions: Jeopardy in Reverse

Out of all the activities on the website, this activity never fails me. Not a single time… It’s even unsilenced the quietest kids. The thing about Reverse Quiz Show is that it always boosts students talking time. I’ve had all levels of students enjoy the reverse quiz show game. They just have to know how to play.

Instead of answering questions like in a quiz show, students are making the questions. Each card has a word with a point value. Similar to Jeopardy, you create 5 categories. Each category has 5 questions with harder cards as a higher point value.

In groups of 4, students pick the category and point value. After flipping over the card, the fastest group to raise their hands make a question. Give a countdown for how fast they have to respond. Don’t be afraid to give negative points if they are too slow to respond or make an incorrect question.

Students get quite competitive when you tally points. And this is a good thing.
