Architecture Jeopardy! February 3, 2012

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 3:06 pm

The 5th graders have become architects, designing buildings for teachers throughout our school.  With every student designing a different type of architecture, every student also has been learning different vocabulary words, such as: turrets, shutters, cupolas, shingles, Colonial-style, and domes.  Every week in the beginning of class, students have been teaching each other the words that they are now “masters” of.  This culminated on Friday with a Jeopardy game, reviewing 20 architectural vocab words.  The winning team from each class will be treated to a luncheon party next Friday!

The final Jeopardy question was: First invented by the ancient Greeks, this is the word for an outdoor theater.

Do You know the answer?!
