Here's an educational Jeopardy! game I made today themed around the month of Ramadhan. I have some family and friends coming over tomorrow so we can prepare for the month of Ramadhan and so I made this for the kids.
Some of the questions are kind of easy and some are a bit difficult so I think children and some teens could benefit from this game. My plan was to make teams of 2 or 3 people, each a mix of a child and teen or adult so the older person can help the younger if need be. And then each team has a chance to pick a question from the board, discuss, and answer--should make 5 rounds.
Anyway what I wanted to do was give you the list of categories and questions I came up with so you can benefit inshAllah and make your own game if you want.
