Magic Quiz

A family feud style quiz game

NEW Social Distance Rules
Rather than make groups in a square have each row be a group. For the first question the first student in each row stands up and tries to answer if they get a chance. Then once that question is done and checked move onto the next students in the row with the next question.

I've added a shortened version of the Passive Game. This way it takes about half the lesson time and in the remaining lesson time the students can write sentences about their town and then individually come to the ALT (who is set up in the corridor or a nearby room) to read their sentence and answer a question or two. There is no worksheet. I suggest having the students write in their notebooks. Once they've talked to the ALT they can return to their seat and make new sentences.

If SOCIAL DISTANCE rules are in place make sure the JTE explains that the students should remain in their seats. When one student is finished then the next student stands up and goes to the ALT. This is to avoid crowding. Also in this case students should only come to the ALT once. After they are finished the JTE should give them a worksheet of some sort to work on.

The teacher needs a copy of the questions.

Click through the demonstration screen before making groups.

Click once on the demonstration screen to see the instructions at the bottom of the screen. Click through them until you get to the key words. The instructions go 'I will ask you a question. Use the key words to answer it. For example. '___ is eaten in ___'. Then click again to see the question 'What food is eaten in America?'. Have the JTE or a student give an answer. Click again saying 'Nice Answer now pick a color' and whisper 'pick purple'. Click again to remove this message and click purple. 'Nice you get 3 points for your team' and click again saying 'This question can have more than one answer. Another team can give it a try'. Click again to remove that message and seek another answer from the JTE or another student. This time let them freely pick a color. If they pick green or orange either the devil (-3) or angel (+5) will appear. Tell them once the devil or angel appears the round is finished. Click on which ever didn't appear to show it and its value. Then click again to show the answer check.

Points should be recorded on the board. You can take turns with the JTE asking questions. The JTE can take the role of recording the points. Also make sure each new pattern is understood.

The students are put into groups to do this quiz after the demonstration scene is done. Then they pick their order. The number one student stands up and they raise their hands to try and answer the question. They should use the pattern on the screen for each answer.

When you are moving through the slides don't click on the witch. Clicking on her leads to the game over screen. Use it if you want to end the activity early.

At the end count the points and see which team wins.

I strongly suggestion familiarizing yourself with the flow of the activity before using it in class. Especially the demonstration screen.

I'd follow this up with a writing activity.
