Using Action Buttons in Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Creating a PowerPoint Jeopardy Game
  • By Aaron Driscoll

2
Uses of PowerPoint Jeopardy
  • You may want to create one as a review activity
    for students.
  • Use the final template included here and just
    change the information to suit your topic. (You
    will need to delete all of the tutorial slides
    first.)
  • Better yet, using this tutorial, have your
    students work together to create some for their
    own review.
  • Assign it as an option for a unit project.
  • Offer it as an enrichment activity for students
    who are so inclined.

Uses of PowerPoint Jeopardycontinued
  • Considerations
  • Developing the template can take a bit of time
    the first time, but once you have it you can just
    change the information for each new topic.
  • Ignore all of the extra slides shown in the
    Print Screen views in this tutorial. The
    PowerPoint Jeopardy included here was created
    simultaneous to this tutorial.
  • The Print Screen command is quite useful if you
    want to create a tutorial such as this with lots
    of visuals. Simply press Ctrl Print Screen on
    your keyboard. It copies everything on your
    screen to the clipboard. You can then paste it
    wherever you want.
  • Enjoy!

4
To begin, for your first slide which will be your
Jeopardy game board, select the slide layout that
includes a table. Double click on the icon to
set the number of rows and columns.
5
For this one, I used 6 rows and 4 columns. One
of the rows will have topic headings. Dont
forget to add your title.
6
Now, under the Slide Show menu, select Action
Buttons, the Custom selection for now.
7
You can choose to play a sound if you would like.
You will set the hyperlink location later.
8
You can double click on the action button to set
colour and other properties.
9
Right click on the action button to Add Text.
10
Now you can copy and paste this into the
appropriate cells of your table.
11
Select whichever action buttons you want and
under the Format menu choose AutoShape to change
colours. You can do as many as you want at once
by pressing either the Shift or Ctrl keys while
you select them.
12
Now, add your category headings and under the
Format menu choose Table and remove the borders
to tidy it up a little.
13
You should end up with a Jeopardy board that
looks something like this. Youll have to change
the point values on your buttons.
14
Now,enter a new slide and give it a title
indicating the category and enter the question.
Then, under the Slide Show menu, enter an action
button hyperlinked to the next slide.
15
Now, under Insert menu, select Duplicate Slide.
You will then need to change Question to
Answer and insert the answer to your question.
16
On your answer slide, delete the old action
button and insert a new one hyperlinked to the
Beginning. This will take you back to the main
Jeopardy board.
17
You should now have 3 slides a main jeopardy
board, a question slide, and
18
an answer slide. All you need to do now is copy
and paste your question and answer slides and
enter the new information for each level and each
new category.
19
In order to speed up this process, you may want
to use the Replace function under the Edit menu.
Simply type in what you want the program to find
and remove for you, and then type in what you
want to replace it with.
20
Use caution, however! The program will replace
all instances of these words or numbers that it
finds, so for the task at hand you should copy
and paste the slides you want to change to a new
PowerPoint file, make the necessary changes, and
then copy and paste them back to your original
file.
21
Once you have all of your slides created, select
one of the action buttons on your Jeopardy board
and under the Insert menu select Hyperlink,
Hyperlink to, Slide, then choose the
appropriate slide number. Dido until youre
finished.
