Our school district studies the regions of the United States as part of our social studies curriculum. It takes us all year to study the ins and outs of each of the six regions. Since this is obviously broken up into six different units, I try to get creative on how students can show me that they understand a particular region (in addition to a test). If you couldn’t tell by the picture, I opted for the famous Jeopardy review!
Using Jeopardy Review Posters in the Classroom
In past units, I have had students create scrapbooks, dioramas, and PowerPoint presentations to explain the features of particular regions. This time around I decided to have them create Jeopardy review posters using Bloom’s Taxonomy.
Happy Teaching! Let me know below how your students liked it!

The Nitty Gritty:
- Our school district studies the six regions of the United States as part of our social studies curriculum. I used Jeopardy review posters, which included Bloom’s Taxonomy, as a way for students to show their understanding of a particular region.
- Students were divided into six groups of four (1st groups). In those groups, each student was assigned a different feature (geography, landmarks, culture, and products & natural resources) with a corresponding number. Then students met with other students who had the same feature/number (2nd groups) and read about their particular feature.
- After reading, students worked in their feature groups to create questions about their specific feature. They created a question for each Bloom’s Taxonomy level.
- Next, students returned to their 1st groups. There they began creating their Jeopardy review posters using index cards that had been folded in half. Questions higher up in Bloom’s Taxonomy were given more points and knowledge questions were given the lowest amount. Higher ability students were given the opportunity to rephrase their questions and answers just as it is done in the show Jeopardy.
