The Powerpoint has got the answers in the note section of each slide, however, some are incorrect. You can get these off the original lateral thinking quizzes as I put them all together using another users' quizzes.
This is to get young people's minds working 'out of the box' with these mind-boggling questions.
I use this resource with the young people I work with and it is a great ice breaker or general activity. Enjoy.

These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library. <br />
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
This informative and engaging double lesson aims to improve students’ ability to compare and contrast two different texts based on a similar subject. They will focus particularly on the purpose, audience, language, and structure of texts, and will learn to use comparing and contrasting connectives to highlight any similarities and differences. This has always been a crucial skill in English, but has an increased importance in the new GCSE for English Language, as there is a greater requirement for students to be able to make links and comparisons between texts.<br />
The lesson follows a clear and logical learning journey, with students learning to:<br />
- Understand the key terms 'compare' and 'contrast', and the importance of these skills in English;<br />
- Categorise the different features that they can compare, under the headings 'Purpose', 'Audience', 'Language' and 'Structure;'<br />
- Read (and identify the key features within) two morally and ethically intriguing texts, offering diverse views of young people in the media;<br />
-Compare the two texts, using a clear and concise template, and newly-acquired knowledge of different types of connectives;<br />
- Peer-assess each other's comparative essay attempts.<br />
Included in this resource pack are:<br />
- Whole double lesson, colourful and engaging PowerPoint presentation (Including assessment for learning referral slides)<br />
- Cards for card-sorting activity;<br />
- Two interesting and thought-provoking non-fiction media extracts (one a newspaper extract from The Evening Standard, and another a persuasive leaflet, both focused on the issue of how young people are perceived.)<br />
