Division can be such a difficult math concept for 3rd graders to master. That’s why I love to use this fun Division Jeopardy Game to help my 3rd graders practice the concepts – but also have fun while doing it!
For teachers – this type of math review is so easy. There is zero planning required other than setting up teams for the game. It’s paperless, so there is no time spent copying pages of practice sheets and you save ink.

How to Play Division Jeopardy Game for 3rd Grade
This game is played in PowerPoint in presentation (Slide Show) mode. Ideally you will use it for whole class division review, but it could be used by students in a math center too.
As mentioned, the only thing you need to do before playing this game with your class is set up 3 teams. You can name the teams or just call them Team 1, 2, and 3. The score-keeping slide in this game is easy to access from every slide, so you can calculate scores or check to see who is ahead really easily.
- Student teams will choose a category and select a question from it. For example, Equal Groups for 100. You will click on the 100 tab and the question will be revealed.
- Give the student team time to answer the question, then reveal the answer.
- If they get it correct, you will click on the calculator link which takes you to the score page and enter the points for that team.
It’s that easy.
The only thing you need to remember NOT to do – is exit from the presentation mode. If you do, the game and scores are reset back to the default.
