Surveying students to assess their prior knowledge serves two purposes: it helps students review information they have (theoretically) already learned, and it lets the instructor assess what their students remember from prior courses.

The Activity

We play a game of Jeopardy that uses basic themes from hydrogeology. The game serves as both a review of material and an introduction to the course.
