M&M Jeopardy Review Game

This week, I am participating in the group, Summer Bucket List.  Several bloggers are getting together to write about their “Bucket List” for the rest of the summer 

Bucket List -Item #1:  Review last school year’s schoolwork before turning my focus to next school year.

Our favorite way to review is M&M Jeopardy.    I created this game a few years ago in an effort to make review more exciting.  Chocolate makes everything more enjoyable, right?

Being a few years old, the game is looking a little worn! But, it receives cheers from my boys every time I pull it out of storage!  It is played like regular Jeopardy, except with M&M’s! 

 

I made eight Jeopardy categories. Because I wanted to review our Classical Conversations Memory Work, I chose these categories: Math, Science, History, Latin, Bible, Geography, English, and Timeline. You may choose any categories that fit your family. On the front of the flap, I typed the number of M&M’s available: 6, 5,4,3,2,1. The hardest questions are worth 6 M&M’s and the easiest questions are worth 1 M&M.  Before each turn, the child chooses a category and a value.  He might say, “I want math for 5 M&M’s.”  or  “I want Geography for 6 M&M’s.” 

 

The questions are on the inside of the flap. After the child chooses their M&M number, the parent opens the flap and reads the question associated with that number. For example, the child says, “I would like Science for 3 M&M’s.” The parent opens the flap and reads “For three M&M’s, please tell me the three kinds of muscles.” The child answers, “The three kinds of muscles are smooth, skeletal, and cardiac.” Next, the parent hands the child three M&M’s.

After feeding their mind, they can feed their bellies!

    What a cute way and simple way to review what you’ve learned. Not to mention, M & M’s are such a great incentive! :)
