Girl Scout Jeopardy

The categories are: Juliette Low, Promise & Law, Outdoor Skills, Girl Scouting Today,  Our Council, first aid, and camping. There will be five "answers" for each category. (Yes, they have to reply in the form of a question.) And like Jeopardy, the answers will be worth more the further you go down the column. The prizes are chocolate. Question 1 is worth 1 chocolate bar, 2 worth 2, etc. They will be in teams by patrols, and all candy will go into a patrol "pot" to be divided up between the members of the patrol when the game is finished.

How  played:  tape the category names across the top of a poster board. Then tape the "answers" face down and upside down under each category. They were numbered 1 through 5. Then, when someone chooses "Juliette Low for 4", I just flip up the "answer" and everybody can read it. The person who answers correctly gets the number of candies the answer was worth, plus she gets to pick the next category/answer. But she does not get first dibs on answering the next question. Try  to take whoever raises their hand first, but also try to give everybody a chance to get some candy.
