Book Day Activities

Book Day Activities

It’s International Book Day on March 1st. I made this sheet for my ESL students, but it might be useful for the whole class. They match up the pictures and titles, settings and genres, complete the word search and book review. This can be extended by researching the book titles and writing a paragraph to summarise each; finding a film to fit each of the book genres… etc. Key included. NOTE: It looks awful on the preview, with boxes jumbled up, but it downloads fine:-)

CHILDREN'S QUIZ - YEAR 4, 5 OR 6, QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS, 7 ROUNDS

CHILDREN'S QUIZ - YEAR 4, 5 OR 6, QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS, 7 ROUNDS

This is a pub-style quiz that I created for my Year 5 class to play, as part of their rewards party that they had earned. There are 7 rounds in the quiz: a children’s books round, anagrams, maths, music, riddles, famous faces and a sports round. There is a joker card included that the children can use to double their points in any one of the rounds. All the questions and answers are included, so it will be very easy to carry out the quiz, you will just need to print a copy for each team. There is a teacher’s copy as well with all the answers on. The music for the music round is not included, but all I did for that round was turn the laptop round so the children couldn’t see the screen and then played the songs on YouTube. I have included some suggestions for songs you could use. The children really enjoyed the quiz. I can upload each round separately as well if anyone wants. Enjoy!
