Elementary School Quizzes
I'm using these for my 3rd and 4th grade classes. The quizzes are the same. They are two choice quizzes that can be done as group activities or just raise their hands.
They are paired with a point get review activity based on the Let's Try textbooks. Before each question there is a hint picture so the teacher can tell the students what type of question they'll be asked. It is a group activity. Each group should choose their order and the first student will answer the first question. Tell them the question, there is a picture hint for each question. One student from each group goes to the teacher with their answer. If its okay they go to the ALT and select a present. Click on it to reveal how many points their group gets. Put the points up on the board. After they've all come up do an answer check and move onto the next question with a new student answering. I've made 12 questions but I'll probably cut some so we have time for other activities.
The next are quizzes I use with junior high school classes.
Quiz One: Canadian Christmas Quiz
It was originally modelled on a British Christmas quiz another ALT made and can be modified easily enough for other western countries.It is a three choice quiz with a lot of extra pictures. You should look through it a few times to decide how you're going to explain things and in how much detail.
I've used this same quiz for students ranging from 3rd grade elementary school through 3rd grade junior high school. It really just depends on how much you talk. A note about the music questions. I've only used them with junior high school. They listen to the music clip and decide which of the two pictures best matches the song they hear.
Next Bonus Quiz
I do this if the first quiz went really quickly. I tell the kids that these are extra questions for bonus points. If they know the answer they should raise their hand. The source of these questions was a Christmas Jeopard game that may have been made by someone in my old office or maybe from the Englipedia.
Quiz Two: This is a quiz about Christmas around the world.
Quiz Three: This is a quiz about some famous Christmas stories.
I have three quizzes so I can use one for each grade.
After the quizes are done cheer the team with the most points then move onto the game.
Talk a little about Santa Claus and then tell the students that he has a brother, Krampus. Santa brings presents for good children but Krampus takes the bad children away. This year the power penguins are here to help protect the children of the world.
Example page has two sample questions. Tap on the number to show the question. Tap on the question to show the answer and then tap on the answer to make both vanish. Right now the sample questions and answers are blank. You'll have to add your own samples. After the first question tap on one of the symbols but not FIRE. This attack will be deflected by Krampus and that penguin will get blown away. In that case the team doesn't get a point. Then do sample question two. This time tap on FIRE and krampus will be defeated and Santa will arrive. You tap on Santa to go to the next screen. In this case the team gets a point.
I generally bring a school tablet or my own tablet to connect to the TV. That way both ALT and JTE can check answers and help groups and the students can manage the game themselves. If they accidentally close it then its still easy enough to reset on a current slide. Alternately one teacher is in charge of the game and another checks answers.
Continue until one or two groups finish all the questions or you get close to the end of class. You can tap on Krampus to go to the END slide.
I've added an additional slide for individual writing although I haven't decided what they should write yet.
The world Christmas Quiz and the Christmas Stories quizzes are a bit big so they can't be emailed.
