TOP FIVE QUIZ
Here are 4 different ‘Top Five’ Quizzes which are really fun and a great alternative to the normal quiz format.
How to Play
Each quiz question has multiple possible answers. For example, ‘Name a zoo animal.’ Students must think of one answer and write it down (or simply tell the teacher if they can’t write yet). If their answer is one of the ‘Top Five‘ answers, then they get points. The number one answer gets the most points and the number 5 answer gets the least points. You’ll be surprised just how many students guess the top answer correctly!
Before Starting The Quiz
Depending on the size of your class, this game is best played in small teams / pairs. Once students are divided into teams, give each team something to write their answer on and to keep track of their points. HERE is a free answer worksheet that can be printed used with these quizzes.
Make It More Fun
To make it more fun, ask each team to come up with their own silly team name. After each question, before you reveal the answers, ask each team to tell you their answer, and when you call on each team, call them by their silly team name.
Comparative and Superlative Quizzes
Here are 2 more fun and easy English quizzes. The first is a comparatives quiz to help practice comparative adjectives. The second, to practice superlative adjectives.
How to Play
Each quiz question has multiple choice answers. All the quiz questions are based on general knowledge and are topics which children are likely familiar with. These English quizzes can be played in class a few different ways.
The simplest way to play this quiz is to just ask students to raise their hand to indicate their answer. If you play this way, the quiz will be relatively short.
To make it more fun and to get students up out of their seats, ask students to move to a side / corner of the room to indicate their answer. Then, ask the students in each corner to shout out their answer. This is a great way to incorporate speaking into this activity.
Put students into pairs or small teams and ask them to write down their answer. Before revealing the answer, ask each team to tell you their answer using the target language. Again, you can print this quiz answer sheet and give to students to write down their answers.
'What Am I?' Quiz
In this fun quiz students must read the clues and guess the answer. There are 10 questions. Each question asks ‘What am I?’ and provides three clues.
How to Play
Simply play the video in class. Students will see three clues and then have 10 seconds to guess the answer. Pause the video if your students need more time to read the questions.
Then, students can either raise their hand to answer, or ask your students to write down the answer on an answer sheet. For more ‘What Am I?’ quiz questions, check out these interactive quizzes from Englishclub.com.
In this easy geography quiz students must try to guess the country before the time runs out.
How to Play
Students will see an outline of a country’s map. Students then have 5 seconds to guess what country it is.
