Jeopardy has long been a beloved game show with its unique answer-and-question format. Call me old, but I grew up watching and answering these fun trivia questions at least once a week. It was a great and educational past time. Introducing children to “Jeopardy!” is a great way to spark their curiosity and encourage a love for knowledge across various subjects, from history and science to literature and pop culture.
