Book Week Scotland is nearly upon us!
Looking for an easy, ready-to-run kidlit quiz (PPT) with solutions (Word Doc)
It’s ideal for upper primary or even S1 and features questions on classic and contemporary children’s books, from picture books to motion picture adaptations.
This one has ten slides per round. I trialled it with 28 kids, split into groups of four. The full thing may take up to 1.5 or 2 hours, depending how much thinking time you allow. They really enjoyed it!
Here you go!
How to run it:
- A plain sheet with group name, round name and numbers down the side will suffice, and a clipboard definitely makes things easier.
- I have found that kids stay most engaged if you give some answers throughout, rather than leaving a huge info-dump till the end. So, ask Rounds 1 and 2, offer answers/scores for Round 1, run Round 3, offer scores for Round 2 etc. But up to you really.
- I think a break somewhere at the halfway stage helps!
