It is an 80 question, animated, interactive team quiz with built – in scoreboard for up to seven teams. All questions are pictorial and multiple choice. A wide-range of topical and historical general knowledge is included. As well as asking a question, most slides also provide some interesting snippets about the topic so pupils are expanding their general knowledge as well as enjoying the activity.Topics include:

Each team will attempt their team round which consists of six general knowledge questions. The answer to each question must be decided by the whole team. If a wrong answer is given, the next question goes to the first hand up and, if correct, that person’s team get to try the rest of the round.

After the team round is the individual round. A maximum of 38 questions answered on a first-hand-up basis accruing points for the team. This second round allows flexibility in terms of the time the quiz takes as not all thirty questions have to be attempted. The quiz therefore can last between 30 and 60 minutes.
