Gamify Learning with Jeopardy Labs

Jeopardy is one of the most popular game shows out there. I even had the cool scoreboard that was plugged into my computer and projector in my classroom as a teacher. I would run full-on Jeopardy games for review and fun learning activities. Students loved this. Now there are places online where you can play pre-made games or even create games for free! JeopardyLabs is one of these sites. Check it out!

Create a Game:

  1. Head over to

  2. Choose “Create a Jeopardy Game”. (You can also choose “Find a Jeopardy Game” if you want to find an already-created game.)

  1. Create a password that will allow you to edit your created game. (You can sign up for a paid version, but the free one will work just fine!)

  1. Edit your game!

    • Enter the Title of your game.

  • Label your categories.

  • You can edit the point value.

  • Enter the questions and answers.

  • You can add rows or columns for more questions if needed.

  • Click “Save and Finish” to save.

  1. Bookmark this page!!! This will be the web link you use to go to the game to play or edit later!

Play a Game:

  1. Either use the  “Find a Jeopardy Game” if you want to find an already-created game or use the bookmark you created when you made a game to play. (There are MANY games to play that are already created!)

  2. Choose how many teams you want and click “Start”.

  1. Divide your class up into teams and choose however you want them to “ring in”. Before I had my cool Jeopardy game I used 3 different bells that sounded different. Then I knew who rang in first. You can also take turns or any other tool you use.

  1. When a team rings in have them tell you the answer. Use your “Space bar” to display the correct answer and give or take away the point on their team.

  1. Use the “Esc” key to go back to the playing board for the next question.

  2. You can also use your mouse and click on the top corner prompts to show the answer or escape.
