What is...Advent Jeopardy?

Alex Trebek I am not. but I do love Jeopardy.

Back in college, I got a hold of an editable powerpoint file that was set up like a Jeopardy game.  You actually click on the point value and it goes to the slide with the "answer," and then another click reveals the "question."  It might as well of been gold.  The thing has been used in many classrooms for everything from reviewing the Rock Cycle to practicing multiplication.

So why not make it about Advent?  Here are a couple of Advent Trivia games for use with mid elementary to middle school kids.  Actually, I have used them with my Youth Group too, which they enjoyed.

Unfortunately, the fonts and style did not transfer quite perfectly to Google Drive, but I imagine that you can do a bit of editing once you have downloaded them to your particular version of Power Point.

There is a link to another Jeopardy game all about the Saints of December here.


  1. I can't open these when I click on the points to pull up the question. Is there any way you could email it to me? This would be great for our youth group!

    1. Hi Keri! My Youth Group kids have loved it too! Sorry you are having trouble- have you tried downloading it? It doesn't always function correctly in Google Slides, but when I download it and run the original file in Power Point, it is fine. If that doesn't work, email me at looktohimandberadiant (at) gmail (dot) com and I'll send you the file.

  2. I downloaded and it works great on my MacBook (Pages app). My CCD class is going to love this!
