Review Game: Jeopardy Labs

I was looking for a fun review game for my final economics review session. Instead of creating a jeopardy game in powerpoint I created on JeopardyLabs. Jeopardy Labs is so easy to use and can be played online from anywhere in the world. Building your own jeopardy game is so easy and it can be modified with a simple editor.  You can also search other jeopardy games by browsing other jeopardy templates  created by other people. As a teacher you can set up the number of teams as well as keep score easily on the Jeopardy Labs website. Another wonderful feature of Jeopardy labs is that your students can play the game at home for additional review.

Statistics in Schools


The U.S. Census Bureau invites you to join the vanguard of a new effort to boost students’ data literacy—a crucial capability for success in every academic field and lifelong careers. We’d like you to test materials that aim to strengthen your lesson plans and improve your students’ achievement.

Teachers know best what works for their students. That’s why we need your feedback to launch Statistics in Schools (SIS), an innovative program to improve students’ data literacy and familiarize them with valuable Census resources.

This summer, SIS will provide exceptional K-12 math and social studies teachers like you with activities and materials to use in their classrooms in the fall. We’re offering videos, interactive maps, games, supplemental activities, and discussion prompts based on real-life data and examples.

Through this SIS Early Adopter program, you will be among the first teachers to try SIS materials in your classroom, and your feedback will help shape the program before it is rolled out in schools nationwide.

Why should you participate? As an early adopter you will:

  • Have exclusive access to new materials aligned with Common Core State Standards.

  • Receive an informational toolkit and biweekly emails with updates on the program and tips on how to incorporate SIS resources into your classroom.

  • Stand at the forefront of a movement to improve data literacy among students and influence a program for teachers and students nationwide.

  • Be a voice for your fellow teachers on the types of resources you need to empower your students to succeed.

To be eligible to serve as an early adopter, we ask that you:

  • Teach math or social studies (including related electives) to K-12 students.

  • Plan to teach from the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year until at least Nov. 30, 2014.

  • Be able to incorporate SIS materials into your classroom as much as possible from August through November.

  • Participate in an early adopter kickoff webinar in August.

  • Provide us with feedback about your experience using the SIS materials and website.

We’re still adding the finishing touches to the SIS website, and we will share it with you as soon as it’s complete.

To confirm your participation as an early adopter or to learn more, contact Shannon Tucker at or 571.366.8984. Provide the following information in your email:

  • Full name

  • School name and full mailing address

  • Type of school (e.g., public, private, charter, tribal, parochial, IB, Title I, alternative, home school)

  • Grade(s) and specific subject(s) you teach

  • Email address and phone numbers to reach you this summer and during the school year

If you know other teachers who might be interested in becoming early adopters, please forward this email to them.
