DRACUT (CBS) – It wasn’t the usual history class for eighth grade students at Lakeview Junior High School on Tuesday.
They were able to compete against each other in a classroom version of the television show Jeopardy.

The show donated an edition of “Classroom Jeopardy” to the school. It’s an interactive, electronic version of the show allowing teachers to create their own games.
It comes complete with hand-held buzzers for students to use when they have an answer and an electronic scoreboard.
Teachers and students used the game for the first time Tuesday.
History teacher Sara Valella told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Doug Cope, it’s a great tool.
“It’s so convenient, it’s easily customizable, every teacher in this building can use it,” she said.
