Many students find science to be a difficult and dull subject. You can use a “Jeopardy” format to bring some fun into your science instruction. In a Jeopardy format, you provide answers and the students respond with questions.
As an example, here are some answers and questions you can use when teaching students about climate and weather.
- Regions on Earth that receive very little rainfall. (What are deserts?)
- The average weather patterns over a number of years in an area. (What is climate?)
- The boundaries where different masses of air collide. (What are fronts?)
- A cloud at ground, or very close to ground level. (What is fog?)
- The effect caused by the trapping of heat coming off a planet’s surface. (What is the greenhouse effect?)
- A type of storm that is created when warm, moist air is thrust upwards, cools, and then condenses. (What is a thunderstorm?)
You can use this Jeopardy format when teaching any subject.
