Stuck for what to do with youngsters during #BookWeekScotland?
I devised this QUIZ (suitable for upper primary/lower secondary school) based on classic and recent children’s titles.
It takes around an hour and a half to run (it helps to have another adult in the room to help with marking!). From The Hungry Caterpillar to The Hunger Games, this quiz should be accessible to all, while still challenging the most devoted of bookworms! The quiz itself is in Powerpoint format, while the solutions are a simple Word document.
There are eight rounds, with ten questions each.
I’d suggest handing each team of 4 pupils a sheet for each round. Get groups to think up a group name and nominate a scribe. After each round, collect them in and run through the answers (your helpers can mark the sheets) before issuing the paper for the next round.
