General Knowledge Weekly Quizzes
General Knowledge Weekly Quizzes are a great way to broaden and extend your pupils knowledge of the world and can be used either as part of an after school or lunchtime club, in the classroom or as further preparation for the Championship.
The quizzes are purchased in sets and each set is composed of 10 quizzes. Each quiz comprises 20 questions of varying difficulty level with associated pictures and an automatic countdown timer allowing 20 seconds to answer each question. The quizzes can be downloaded either with full narration by our Quizmaster or without narration if you prefer to present the quizzes yourself. On many questions, the Quizmaster will explain why an answer is correct/ why some answers couldn't be right and further information surrounding the question and answers. Blank answer cards for the players are also available to download.
The quizzes run automatically although teachers are able to override the automatic timing of the quiz if they wish. Each quiz takes around 40 minutes to complete including marking. If teachers wish to run a shorter quiz – they can simply stop the quiz at any point that suits them and move straight to the answer section.
Children can play individually or in teams, dependent on what suits their teacher. At the end of each quiz, the players are directed to mark each other’s cards.
