Music Jeopardy Game by Jeff Lean
We would like to thank Jeff Lean of Liberty Public Schools for submitting this great idea. It is a jeopardy music game that he uses with his class. He divides the kids into teams, puts the PowerPoint up using a projector, and uses various percussion instruments to signal when they have an answer to submit. Changing the questions, answers and the final Jeopardy question is easy. Give it a shot!
