Classroom Demonstration Instructions

To play "Root Jeopardy" with your class, you may want to use two teams. This web page does not keep track of the score, just the questions. Be sure to check each button as students select questions so none of the questions get repeated and you can see when the game is over.

Also, you may want to print the following grid of answers. This will be helpful when one group answers a question wrong and the other now has the opportunity to answer. You don't want to reveal the answers on the web site too soon.

Having Trouble?

Be sure to click the button before selecting the link. Otherwise it is easy to forget what was already asked. This works well with Internet Explorer 6. However, with Internet Explorer 5 the page re-loaded with every link so the check buttons were erased after each question. I think there is an option to correct this, but I couldn't find it. Try upgrading to IE 6 or use the link below to go to a printable version of the question matrix. You can print this and mark off completed questions manually.
