Wasn’t General Conference wonderful? There were many nuggets of wisdom and truth and testimony shared. Now to review what we heard, study the words of prophets and apostles, and make them a part of our daily lives.
If you remember last conference I created a General Conference Jeopardy to use in a family home evening, seminary class, or for Young Women or Young Men mutual activity. This year I wasn’t able to take good enough notes to warrant creating a game myself. Thankfully Barb Gardner, a member of a seminary e-mail list I belong to, created General Conference Jeopardy and it is terrific! It is a powerpoint presentation which makes it even better, especially when playing in larger groups. We played last night for our family home evening and had our computer hooked up to our big screen tv for easier viewing. Barb has generously allowed me to share it all with you.
To download click on the picture below.
When you view it in dropbox you will see all the screens that were used to create the powerpoint. Don’t let that scare you away! Download and save the powerpoint to your computer. And follow these directions for playing.
Bring it up in PowerPoint Viewer. Click through to the contestants. When you click on a contestant it will take you to the game board. A student picks a category and a $ amount. You click on that dollar amount and it will take you to the question. Another click will take you to the answer. THEN click on the green triangle at the bottom of the answer slide and it will take you back to the contestants. Hopefully the question previously picked will now be dark and only the “unasked” questions will be highlighted. When you finish Round 1 you will click on the Round 2 box and repeat as above. When you finish round 2 you will then click on Final Jeopardy. You will need to keep score as the powerpoint won’t do that.
And a HUGE thank you to Barb Gardner!
