Reflection: Organizational Systems Parabolas and Review of Line-sanity! - Section 3: Jeopardy


In order to do today's Jeopardy game, we used these white board as a way to engage all of my students and also allow me to have instant feedback on student knowledge.  Also, these boards were very cheap!  I went to Home Depot and asked to buy a large whiteboard then they cut the boards up into smaller like 2ft by 2ft squares.  I've had them for 4 years!
