Team Quest Christmas 2020 is a fantastic way to end the semester. It is a 62- question animated and interactive team quiz with built – in score board for 7 teams. The 8 different types of question can easily be undertaken by students while meeting any requirements to socially distance and there is a reminder to so at the beginning of each team round.
It promotes the concepts of both working as a team and contributing individually to the success of a team. As it starts, the rules for answering each round are clearly explained. One purchaser of a similar quiz commented “it helped to build community in my classes”.
All questions types are pictorial and multiple choice. A wide range of general knowledge questions and tasks are included. As well as asking a question, a lot of slides also provide some interesting snippets about the topic so pupils are expanding their general knowledge as well as enjoying the activity. Topics include:
