Host Game Shows in your classroom- Tony Vincent

Jeopardy Labs Game Board from our really hard game show.

Who Wants to Be a Winner in the classroom

Who Want to Be a Winner is even more fun when the lights are out and the disco ball is on.

You can find PowerPoint templates for popular game shows online, like Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, Jeopardy, Hollywood Squares, and Who Wants to be a Millionaire. Many of these templates even come with music and sound effects or you can add your own. Download free templates from the PowerPoint Games and Classroom Game Templates pages. If you don't have PowerPoint, there's JeopardyLabs, where you input your questions and play online in your web browser.
