EUROPE GENERAL KNOWLEDGE QUIZ - 100 MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS

EUROPE GENERAL KNOWLEDGE QUIZ - 100 MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS

THE GREAT BIG EUROPE QUIZ - PERFECT FOR HONING YOUR STUDENTS' KNOWLEDGE OF ALL THINGS EUROPEAN - ART, CULTURE, FOOD, GEOGRAPHY, HISTORY, LANGUAGE, LITERATURE, MUSIC, PEOPLE, POLITICS, SCIENCE AND SOCIETY! This quiz features 100 multiple-choice questions, and is perfect for developing students’ awareness, understanding and knowledge of all things EUROPEAN. The questions range from basic general knowledge to more specialized factual knowledge. They address a comprehensive range of topics: art, culture, food, geography, history, language, literature, music, people, politics, science and society. You can be QUIZ QUESTION MASTER, but students do enjoy taking on that role in turns. The questions often stimulate further and deeper discussion about particular themes and topcs - for example, the question regarding Pythagoras’ identity always gets students talking about Pi, 3.14 and how many points they can remember! The quiz is in a basic, editable presentation format, with the correct answer revealed in bold on the second click. It's ideal for a whole-group activity, with students choosing a European-themed team name. Play in homeroom or in any subject area lesson as a brain-break - the questions really are cross-curricular! Play several times at intervals across the school year - this really does put students’ memory and developing knowledge to the test. The quiz goes down particularly well at key points in the school year: end of year, back to school, Christmas and so on. I've also used the quiz at whole-school events - great for the whole family to play! Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the quiz is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. THANKS AND HAVE FUN!
