Learning Target
Students will review for their Iliad unit test by playing a review game of Jeopardy!.

Opening Session
Divide into teams! I need groups of 4 at the tables around the room, and we’re only going to have a non-4 group if we absolutely have to!
Within your teams, you need to number off 1-4. I’ll be calling “All the 1s can buzz in!” and “All the 2s can buzz in!” so you need to pay attention to when you’re eligible to ring in and question a Jeopardy answer.

Once you’re in your teams, choose your favorite Olympian god for your team name 🙂

Work Session
It’s time for ILIAD JEOPARDY!!

We will be playing exactly like real Jeopardy!. That means if you get a question wrong or buzz in and don’t know, you will LOSE points! Fun fact, Jeopardy! gets its name because when you answer a question, you’re in *jeopardy* (danger) of losing your money. Also, you must put your response in the form of a question. In the Jeopardy round I will remind you; in the Double Jeopardy round I will not.
