Jeopardy

Objective:
· To have students ask questions about AIDS and to review information about AIDS.

Target Group:
· All groups depending on the categories selected.

Materials:
· Jeopardy board, game markers, category statement cards.

Preparation:
· The teacher must first make a Jeopardy board. The board is made by drawing a grid with four to six categories, e.g. AIDS, transmission, prevention myths, symptoms, etc., across the top and point totals from 5 to 1 vertically under each category. One point answers are the easiest and four point answers are the most difficult. For example, a one point statement under the AIDS category could be: "The first case of this disease appeared in Thailand in 1985." A four point statement in this same category could be: "It is the acronym for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome."

Directions:
· To begin the game, divide the class into two teams and choose one team to play first. One student from the starting team then chooses a category and a point total: "AIDS for one point." The teacher then reads the corresponding statement: "The first case of this disease appeared in Thailand in 1985." The student must then make a question, "What is AIDS?" If the student formulates a question correctly, his/her team receives the corresponding point total. Then a student from the other team chooses a category and a point total. The game continues until all of the answers have been given and questions formulated. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
