These are two Jeopardy style trivia games on a Canadian theme, originally created for the old Heritage badge. One is about Canada in general, and one is specifically about Ottawa.
This is an instant download – I have my copies of these cards if you live in the neighbourhood and would like to borrow them, but it’s probably just as easy for you to download the files, and print and make your own set of cards.
These games best suited to Guide and Pathfinder age.
To use both games:
- Print out one copy of the Answer sheet, which has a full grid showing all the questions, their “dollar” value, and answers.
- If you’d like to make a full visual board, print out the Questions sheet, which has all the questions and dollar values laid out in large text. For each question, cut out the text and glue it to an index card; glue the dollar value and category for that question to the other side. You can make a card for the main category title, too. Lay out the cards in traditional Jeopardy game board style and flip each one to reveal the question as the girls pick a category and dollar value.
- For the Ottawa game, you’ll also need to print out the Flags and Crests file as visual aids to the flags category. There are large versions of the flags to hold up or pass around, and smaller ones that I glued to the index card with the question that is about that flag.
