How To Make A Jeopardy Game On Google Slides

Ever wondered how you can make your presentations more engaging? How about making a jeopardy game using Google Slides? It’s a fun and interactive way to review any subject matter. Let’s break down the steps to create your own Jeopardy game in Google Slides.

Creating the Jeopardy Board

To make our Jeopardy game, we’ll need a board. Follow the step-by-step guide below:

  1. Open Google Slides and create a new presentation.
  2. Start by clicking File -> Page setup and select Custom from the drop-down menu. Enter the dimensions 10 x 7.5 inches for a standard Jeopardy layout.
  3. Delete any existing text boxes on the slide so you’re left with a blank slide.
  4. Create a grid for your Jeopardy board. Remember, a traditional Jeopardy board has 5 categories with 5 questions each, so that’s a 5×5 grid. Use the Insert -> Table option to create your grid.

Adding Questions and Answers

Now, let’s add some questions and answers to our game. Here’s how:

  1. Create a new slide for each question. To do this, go to Slide -> New slide.
  2. On each slide, type your question. You may also include the answer by hiding it in a text box or using a different color.
  3. Remember to link back to the main board on each question slide. To do this, highlight a text (ex. “Back to Board”), then click Insert -> Link. In the pop-up box, select Slides in this presentation and choose the board slide. Repeat this process for all question slides.

Making It Interactive

We need to make our game interactive by linking each cell in the grid to their corresponding question.

  1. Go back to your board slide and highlight the first cell. Then click Insert -> Link.
  2. In the pop-up box, select Slides in this presentation and choose the correct question for that cell. Repeat this process for all cells in the grid.

Finalizing the Game

Finally, to make sure the game runs smoothly during the presentation, set the presentation to be clicked manually.

  1. Go to File -> Publish to the web.
  2. Under Auto-advance slides, select On click then click Publish.

That’s all there is to it! You’ve now successfully created a Jeopardy game using Google Slides. It’s a simple and exciting way to review any subject, and engage your audience. Enjoy your game!
