This game is kind of a twist on Jeopardy. To start, divide the class into teams (3 or 4 teams is better than 2) and invite the first team to choose a number (if using a PowerPoint) or a card. Each number or card corresponds to a question which the team must then answer. Questions can be anything you want, but one idea is to simply have sentences that the students must translate. Each question is worth 5, 10 or 20 points and the difficulty of the questions should vary depending on how many points it is worth. It’s up to you to decide whether a question can be passed to the next team if the first team is unable to answer. Either a bomb or a star is chosen randomly and revealed to the team only if they get the answer right. If it is a bomb, they can take the points away from another team, and if it is a star they get the points added to their own score.
