Download and customize a Jeopardy game for free

These Jeopardy templates will help you create custom Jeopardy games to help your students get ready for a test, review prior information, or even be introduced to a new unit.

Elementary school children all the way up to high school students love taking a break from "normal" learning with a fun game of Jeopardy. They won't even realize how much they're learning.

The templates below are structured like the Jeopardy TV game show and can be opened in PowerPoint or a free presentation software program.

Each template can be customized to some degree. Some will have a completely blank board while others have questions and answers already filled out for you. They can be used for any school subject and are great for homeschooling as well.

There are many other PowerPoint game templates to help your students learn; we especially recommend the Family Feud templates for a fun test review game.
