LESSON 2: THE STEM LAB GAMESHOW
ACTIVITY 1: WHAT IS AN ASSESSMENT?
Today, we are going to have a game assessment to see if you know and can follow the policies, procedures, and rules of S.T.E.M. Lab. The game is called, STEM Lab Jeopardy.
ACTIVITY 2: HOW TO PLAY THE GAME
STEM Lab Jeopardy is played a lot like the real game of Jeopardy on T.V. You will have 6 categories of topics. Each topic has 5 questions. Each question is worth a certain amount of points. You will be divided into teams and each team will get a buzzer. I will select the first question of the game. If your team knows the answer, press the buzzer. The first team to press the button, locks all the other teams out from buzzing in. Your team has 15 seconds to answer the question. If you answer correctly, you get the points that the question was worth and you select the next category and question. If you answer incorrectly, I will tell you that you are incorrect and release the lock out to allow another team to answer. If they answer correctly, they get the points and get to choose the next category and question. When all the questions on the board are answered, you are ready for Final Jeopardy. In the final Jeopardy round, you will see the category of the question you will have. Then as a team, you will decide how many points you want to wager on the question. This is a great time to bet a lot of points to catch up if you are behind and only a little amount of points if you are ahead. When the final Jeopardy question is asked, each team will have 30 seconds to write down their answer on a slip of paper. When time is called, I will show the answer and reveal the correct answer and the answers and amount of points wagered by each team. After I add or subtract the wagers from your scores, the team with the highest score wins the game.

SELF - ASSESSMENT
So, how did you do? Do you know the policies, procedures, and rules of S.T.E.M. Lab? Can you follow them? If you did well in the game, congratulations. I am very proud of you. If you did not do well, do not worry. You can play the game as much as you like at home until you do. I will help you and your classmates will also help you. After all, we are all in this together. You will spend more time with the people in this room than you will spend with your families at home. This makes us like a family, and families help and support each other!
