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.
I usually put the students into groups and one member from each group brings their answer. After every team brings an answer we do an answer check and teams get a point if they were correct.
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.
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. 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 also included Krampus Attack and the World Christmas Quiz.
This is not the full version. It is shortened so the file size will be smaller and I can email it to myself for use on my ipad.
This quiz is new and I'm using it for classes that already did the Canadian Christmas quiz the year before. Krampus Attack is the same but without the full introduction since they played the game the previous year.
I've added alternate worksheets for New Crown. These have no follow up sentences. I've found this year my classes didn't have so much time for Krampus after the quiz and other lesson routines.
