Summer Festivals Quiz

Summer Festival Quiz

Updated 2021
I originally had this paired with Deep Sea Race but I decided to move it since they don't really need to be done together.

This is a quiz game I use at the end of the summer vacation before getting the students to write about their summers. There are 12 festivals from around the world. I think I added two based on quizzes other contributors here did later on.

NOTES on the Summer Festival Quiz

Some notes

2nd Year La Tomatina I estimated the number based on the average weight of a medium sized tomato. It is probably very inaccurate.

2nd Year India there is a container of buttermilk at the top of the pyramid the goal is to hit the contain and knock it over spilling the butter milk on the people for luck.

      Always great to see some Canadian content. Thanks for this!

      Thanks Robert, another nice quiz. I made some edits for my lessons, sharing in case anyone wants to take a look. Most of the content is the same, it's just a bit easier to read now. I've listed the changes in the notes on the first slide. Btw still not meant for Google Slides, that's just how I'm sharing it; I suggest opening in Ppt as usual.

      Apologies, previous link is no good, accidentally made an edit in Google which dropped some Powerpoint features. I'll share as a folder this time in case I missed something and need to upload an new version.

      Thanks, its nice to know somebody is getting some use out of it. These days my teachers start the term running so I don't usually get a chance to use this after the summer anymore. That ABeeZee font you used it very sharp.

      I've used enough Comic Sans to last me a few lifetimes. It's a bit inconvenient to use non-system fonts, but so worth it IMO.

      I get that. On our systems and maybe most schools you can find a few variations on 'UD デジタル 教科書体'. It does the 'a' and the 'Y' right and I keep meaning to stop using comicsans and switch over to it. But a combination of force of habit and 教科 font being just a little too textbook looking has slowed me down.

      Very nice, if I'd realized that one is so solid, I probably never would've dug myself so deep on these oddball fonts. Too late to turn back now! I don't judge anyone for using Comic Sans though, it serves a purpose. Even using UD デジタル 教科書体 as the main font, Comic Sans would still be useful for writing examples (unless Ink Free is a system font, can't remember).

      There is Bradley Hand. It is pre-installed in office. It is good for showing handwriting. But its a bit light and hard to see.
