I used the Napier press textbook by Webb et al to create round of questions on each topic. I award points per question and then a prize for winning team of each round. Bonus questions are separate and whichever team gets closest to the bonus question wins a separate prize. Picture round is open to interpretation and you can award points for the most relevant concept students attach to each picture!

AS Sociology SCLY1 Families & Households End of term/unit Key concept & YouTube song match quiz

(0)
This is a quiz I devised using You Tube clips of songs that I have linked to some of the key concepts I have studied during the Autumn term within SCLY1. I use this as my last lesson before Christmas holidays as it’s fun but still a revision style quiz for them. I give students the blank sheet with just the concepts on and then I would play the songs from the links on the teacher sheet (audio only), so freeze your board! Obviously don’t play them in the order they are currently in as this makes it too easy! You don’t have to play the whole song, just see how the class are going. The answers below aren’t hard and fast, students can argue that different songs go with other concepts so just use your professional judgement when going through the answers at the end! (My students enjoyed the variety of different songs below and I played some of the 80s videos at the end of the quiz as a fun end to the lesson too!)
