  7. Repeat step 6 renaming each category heading
  8. After completing steps 6 and 7, you are now ready to begin entering your questions and answers.  On the Jeopardy game show contestants receive the answer and must give the question.  If you wish to give the students the question and have them answer it…it’s OK….it’s your game.
  9. Let’s enter questions. Scroll to the next slide. Slide 2 is your first answer, Slide 3 will be your first question…and so on.
