4 x The Monthly News Quiz, 15 topical questions of the month's news, across the UK and the world From the weekly News Quiz to be used as a monthly summary or because there's not time to do a quiz every week. Powerpoint so can be used on a standard whiteboard. Works well as a form group activity in form time. I give sweets/reward points to the winning group! (We're not supposed to give out sweets so it's a nice 'naughty' reward for knowing about the world this month!) Created 12 months of the year and uploaded to TES each month.

Interactive Quiz of the Year 2017

Interactive Quiz of the Year 2017

An interactive (don't worry all instructions are in the notes panel for each slide) 23 slide PowerPoint based quiz covering a range of things from 2017. Sufficient rounds and activities for an hour - but could be cut into separate shorter sessions easily. I have included some images in the files attached to give a preview. Included are; Two rounds of family fortunes (including all noises and clickable answers) - you could take this and make more rounds [festive or not] from this template... An advent calendar of sports to name the winners of blue ribband events this year around the world... A number of 'mystery' people from 2017 that appear from behind a myriad of Christmas decorations covering their face... A round of matching the key events to given dates ... A round of can you spot the celebrity with a Christmas birthday?... A round of spot the winners from the reality TV shows of the year... Two rounds of higher or lower based on key numbers from 2017... The obligatory music round - spot the lyrics from the songs released this year with sound bite samples of the originals... And five rounds of 'word of the year' based on Countdown's letters game - another template you could easily adapt which includes working clock and 30 second music. I have decided to charge for this resource as it has taken me seven hours to compile (albeit on a snow day!). I have not included a scoring system, as every class is different. But I think that this would lend itself well to teams - the choice though I have left to you! Enjoy.
