Many years ago the height of technology integration was creating an interactive Jeopardy game in PowerPoint. So, I decided to go a little retro and recreate the Jeopardy game in Google Slides.
The key to making a Jeopardy game is to use the Link tool in Google Slides. Normally a slideshow is designed to be viewed sequentially, one slide followed by the next in order. However, Google Slides allows you to put links in slides that can link to any other slide in the presentation, regardless of order. By using links to other slides, a presentation can be created that is non-linear, in which the user can choose which slides to view.
Detailed directions on how to create interactive presentation with Google Slides can be found in my help guide linked below.
So, using this technique I created two Jeopardy Game Templates. One has five categories and the other has six categories. In each template all the items are already hyperlinked, so all you have to do is make a copy of the slideshow and then add your questions, answers, and topic descriptions.
You can open the Jeopardy Game Templates with the links below.
As an example of a completed Jeopardy game created from these templates, below is a link to a Math Terms game.
And finally, the obligatory disclaimer:
