The News Quiz 23rd - 30th April 2018 Form Tutor Time Topical Events Settler Starter

13 topical questions of the past week’s news, across the UK and the world. ANY MIS-SPELLINGS/MISSING CAPITALS ETC. IN THE PREVIEW ARE INTENTIONAL AND LINK TO THE LITERACY QUESTIONS IN THE REST OF THE QUIZ! Powerpoint so can be used on a standard whiteboard. Includes 2 literacy and 1 numeracy questions based on the other questions. Works well as a form group activity in registration time. I give sweets/reward points to the winning group! (We’re not supposed to give out sweets so it’s a nice ‘naughty’ reward for knowing about the world this week!) Created 38 school weeks of the year and uploaded to TES.

This resource includes 9 Civics and Government Escape Rooms: Citizenship and Naturalization Preamble Escape Room Bill of Rights Escape Room Founding Fathers Escape Room Branches of Government Escape Room Declaration of Independence Escape Room Articles of Confederation Escape Room Supreme Court Civil Rights Movement This 9 pack bundle of Civics and Government related Escape Rooms will take students on 9 separate secret missions around the classroom! Each escape room has students decode interesting facts about the Preamble, the Declaration, Bill of Rights, Founding Fathers, Branches of Government and more!. This is the perfect resource to introduce the civics topic or to review the topics. Each Escape Room has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given 9 different secret code names and sent on 9 separate secret missions. The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit code based on the decoders/clues. Each clue and code is different. The codes require students to think differently to decipher or decode them. Some codes are easier than others. Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. Each code will reveal facts related to the topic. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final code. Students can report the final code to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all! No props needed!! Each room is a NO PREP, PRINT & GO Activity! Students are sent on 9 separate “secret missions” and given a different back story to ignite their active learning skills. They are given a code name which makes them feel as if they are part of the secret mission. Students practice hands-on, practical problem solving skills all while learning about various Civics topics. Your students will be inspired to think outside the box! The best age range for this resource is 8+. Please look at the preview to determine if this resource works for your age group. Younger students may need some help with some of the more difficult codes. You can use the pre-labeled clues or you can challenge older kids to choose/find the decoder that works for each of the clues. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders are included. In addition to learning or reinforcing the subject matter, my escape rooms encourage teamwork and critical thinking. As a “timed” challenge, students will be engaged from beginning to end. An answer key and teacher directions are provided. Time needed: 30-60 minutes per room

ANZAC Day Jeopardy Quiz Game

ANZAC Day Jeopardy Quiz Game

This fun and engaging game is the perfect way to review, study or reflect with your class on ANZAC day I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game can be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. Once you have unzipped the file you will find a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say “yes” to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions.
