You Can Play The 5th Graders "Holiday Trivia Fun" Jeopardy Rocks Game Too!

Tomorrow, Hagan and I celebrate the last day of school before Christmas break with a little holiday party.  We decided it would be fun to create a trivia game to play with the 5th graders....something different, fun and educational too.  
One of my favorite online jeopardy creators is Jeopardy Rocks....I wrote about it a few months ago.
You can read the post Jeopardy ROCKS! And Your Students Will Think This Online Game Does Too here and see how easy it is to create your own game too.  
As you create your jeopardy game, there can be up to 6 columns with 5 rows in each.
 Each question can include an image, video or equation.  The answers can include the same.
Here is one I set up for Holiday Movies using a YouTube clip from How The Grinch Stole Christmas. As I created the question, I copy and pasted the YouTube url into the box by the question.   
When playing Jeopardy Rocks, this question looks like this....with an awesome video box in the center.  It plays right from this website.
And the answer looks like this.  Remember...you can also add an image, video or equation to the answer box.

At the bottom of the screen, you can see the little characters which are the teams playing Jeopardy Rocks.  There can be four teams playing at one time.  And yes, they are adorable little vegetables.

One of the best things about Jeopardy Rocks is that anyone can play the game you create by sharing the url with them.
You can play our Holiday Trivia Fun game from this url www.jeopardy.rocks/wintertriviafun
Have fun playing this over holiday break...at home or at school.

Jeopardy Rocks has a free or paid version.  I bought the paid version for $5.00 this month to try out all of the upgraded features.  It is definitely one that I will purchase again because being able to upload videos, images and equations makes learning very engaging for our learners.

Have fun....and have a wonderful holiday.
