Students Learn Through 'Jeopardy!'
Classroom Jeopardy! from Educational Insights brings the popular TV game show into the classroom. Players or teams select a category and value, which the teacher enters into the MC remote controller, then the answer is instantly displayed on a TV screen. When players or teams buzz in with their wireless remotes, the teacher presses "Correct" or "Incorrect" on the MC controller, prompting the electronic scoreboard to add or subtract points automatically. In addition, teachers can create their own customized games by plugging the special detachable keyboard into the back of the scoreboard unit, and following the simple prompts on the LCD display to type in categories and answers. The games are automatically saved on plug-in cartridges.
Classroom Jeopardy! comes with everything you need to play your own classroom game, including a scoreboard/base-control unit, a detachable keyboard, three wireless student remote controllers, one wireless remote MC controller, and one cartridge with preprogrammed sampler games and blank storage space. Additional game storage cartridges and extra scoreboards with remotes are available, allowing up to 10 scoreboards to be connected.
