Title: ~ The World Quiz ~
Post by: vitamin-d on November 03, 2010, 01:46:45 pm
This lesson primarily focuses on drilling countries, continents and oceans.
However, it does require some general knowledge and guess work on behalf of the learners in the PPT quiz.

There is probably more material here than necessary.
It all depends on the level of your learners and how snappy you teach.

Please use or omit as you feel.
Feedback is most welcome.

Greetings
Continents & Oceans
Worksheet
The World Quiz
Quick Countries List


Please find all teacher directions in the attached Lesson Plan.

- In the PPT, to return from a question to the main map click on the hyperlinked globe (top left)
Also, to move from the practice review to the actual quiz click one of the red 'are you ready's in the corners.
- I cannot guarantee how the 'hearts, guns & bombs scenario will play out as I have not tried it yet.
Somebody else posted the idea on Waygook.org and I thought it sounded great.
It's up to you to tweak the amount of lives, etc.
- The Worksheet is two pages. Double sided print if you can.


Also, I use Blue Highway Linocut Font: http://www.getfreefonts.info/free_font.bluehighwaylinocut.html
To install it, unzip the file and drag the font icon into your fonts folder (C:/windows/fonts)

I hope this helps!
Good luck 8)

PPT has been edited & re-uploaded. Corrections: African Culture / Sound Effects / Fonts Embedded
Thank you, GreenFloyd, for adding the sounds  :D
Thank you, Gilly, for correcting the information about South Africa  ;)

Looks great, really professional.

Recently, I've been obsessed with a geography game on facebook called 'geo challenge'. You'll find it if you do a search for exactly that. I'm gonna let my small-sized evening class play as well as doing this, I think it'll fit perfectly.

Wow I love it. I think I'm going to use the template for a Friday review of my travel week lesson and change the questions around. Awesome job :). I think the only thing that might make it a little more engaging is a sound after clicking the correct box. Kids dig the anticipation to hear that bomb sound if they get bombed or the sound that they got the answer correct. It really made the Mario Bomb lesson that Jennifer Yong posted a while back ago such a hit.

Yeah I'll try to add sounds for you and re-upload it  8). It depends a little bit on how my time goes today though. It might take until tomorrow. I'm very busy :(
Title: Re: The World Quiz Lesson (Hearts, Guns & Bombs)
Post by: GreenFloyd on November 04, 2010, 07:44:26 am
Actually I just did it right now and it didn't take nearly as long as I thought. I just used the stock PPT cash register and bomb sounds to add to the objects. Much easier than I thought it would be!

Here it is with sounds now.

Post by: vitamin-d on November 04, 2010, 09:08:13 am
Thanks GreenFloyd, you've done an excellent job!
I wish I knew how to do it on this Korean PPT.

I may figure it out on an English one and then try to match it in Korean  ???

If you don't mind, I'll replace the old file with this one to make sure people see it and download it.

Thanks again for the effort and time!

This looks like a great lesson, but I am a little confused.  How do you know which is the right answer, as all the sounds seem to be the same?  Also, where are the answers for reference?  Thank you so much - I would like to try it.

- Hey Carlita. The correct answer would be the one with the heart or gun symbol.
A bomb symbol, and explosion sound, would be the wrong answer.

If you still need the questions and answers written up let me know and I guess I can find time to do that...

Post by: vitamin-d on November 05, 2010, 09:58:17 am

I'm very new to PowerPoint, though, and I just had a few questions:
A lot of the words and such in the ppt seem squished together or too big for the screen - is this how it looks to everyone, or am I just doing something wrong on my end?

For example, almost all of the answers have the words hyphenated and over two lines, and lots of words appear off-screen for me.

Hey Cole, this is the unfortunate thing about PPT.
No, it should look like this at all. However, if you simply do this:

"Also, I use Blue Highway Linocut Font: http://www.getfreefonts.info/free_font.bluehighwaylinocut.html
To install it, unzip the file and drag the font icon into your fonts folder (C:/windows/fonts)"

It should make it look as I intended it.
I believe, because your font will be different then the sizes and positioning of everything would be skewed.
It's unfortunate.

I do wish there was some kind of PPT PDF maker or something, some way of stamping a PPT as it was intended. Anyone every heard of such a thing?
* actually, I just found one: prep4pdf - the free download worked but I can't make it interactive enough
to be worthwhile. Know of a better one?

Post by: gilly on November 05, 2010, 11:05:50 am
Hi this lesson is awesome and I appreciate all of the effort you put in but I have a few corrections to the South Africa part of your PPT, the question is "What is the capital of South Africa?" and SA is unique in that we have 3 capitals:
 Pretoria (executive), Bloemfontein (judicial) and Cape Town (legislative) which means two of your answers are correct (Pretoria and Bloemfontein) so you might want to change this question. Also the picture on the 'South Africa' page for the practice round is misleading because it is the outline of Africa with the SA flag across it; and as most people think Africa is a country not a continent and I fear you are perpetuating this misperception making it look like SA is the whole of Africa, As a South African these are the daily things I have to try to correct in the perceptions of Korean kids and teachers alike so I hope you understand my concern and thanks again for the lesson.

Post by: vitamin-d on November 05, 2010, 11:40:19 am
@ Gilly - Being from the UK I completely understand where you're coming from.
No English is not from Canada/U.S.A. And no, neither Washington nor Chicago are the capital of England.

Regarding the capitals, this is a little annoying for me. During the world cup I taught my students that there
were 3 capitals of South Africa, as you have mentioned. However, unsure of myself afterwards I spoke to
some South African friends who told me that officially there was only one. So I changed it.
On further review, I will now change it again.  :P

I also understand how the picture of the continent Africa with the South African flag is misleading and will change it right away.
(Although with Brazil as a football and England as a pair of underwear, I wasn't striving for accuracy.)
However, I hope you understand that the rest of the PPT makes it very clear as to where South Africa is.

I will attach the edit to my first post.
Thanks for your feedback.
Title: Re: The World Quiz Lesson (Hearts, Guns & Bombs)
Post by: gilly on November 08, 2010, 11:56:32 am
Thanks for the changes, glad you understand what its like to be non-North American, ya the three capitals thing is confusing, I blame our government for making life so complicated. Most sources still identify us as having 3 capitals but the most recognised one is usually Pretoria so I mostly just tell people that its the capital if they ask (its just easier) but the problem was that Bloemfontein was one of the answers in the quiz which is a possibility (because its one of the 3) so your change to East London is perfect!! Have a great day and keep making awesome lessons  ;D
Title: Re: The World Quiz Lesson (Hearts, Guns & Bombs)
Post by: vitamin-d on November 08, 2010, 07:20:45 pm
No problem at all. I appreciate you taking the time to correct me.
I hope the lesson works well for everyone.

I just ran it today. Not enough time for the very last activity.
The PPT went down a treat though, as did the worksheet.

I meant to update how this went. I used your game as a template and put in all my own questions from the world/travel lessons that I taught. It was a huge hit! My middle school boys totally loved it. Thanks for making it :).
Title: Re: The World Quiz Lesson (Hearts, Guns & Bombs)
Post by: Koradian on November 10, 2010, 08:27:56 am
What a huge hit with both students and co-teachers! Although I allowed the students to debate the answers in Korean within their groups, a properly structured English answer was expected for their teams final answer. Throw in some sort of treat for the winning team.... you'll have a blast!

Thanks for the brilliant lesson plan!

Hello, This game worked very well for me. Though, I made some changes since it was too easy for my high school class. I made some of the questions more difficult and I also took away some hearts and replaced them with more guns. I also added different sounds. Tell me what you think. Thank you.
Title: Re: The World Quiz Lesson (Hearts, Guns & Bombs)
Post by: DirtySexyMoney on November 16, 2010, 01:51:45 pm
Hey,
I just played the game with my first 3rd Grade boys class, and as I'd anticipated they wrecked the class- screaming, shouting, hollering, throwing things, throwing themselves on the floor, beating each other up for wrong answers and alot of friendships broken after each bullet that went off! Basically, it was possibly my most successful class with the difficult to please 3rd grade.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU sooooo soooo much! You're a star! :-*

ps- the question about the oceans: if you click on the first blue question mark, the qustion is about the Atlantic ocean. I thought that was the Pacific (that's what the practice round answer says)... I never did geography at school so please help me out.

love- your biggest fan

Indeed. It can be quite disheartening how certain students are of their lack of interest in travel. It makes one wonder why on earth they are being forced to learn English. All this time and effort, just so, if they're lucky, they can work on an information desk in a big city bus station...
Title: Re: The World Quiz Lesson (Hearts, Guns & Bombs)
Post by: shea.karssing on November 25, 2010, 08:38:35 am
I was actually pretty impressed by the knowledge of my students (Middle School grade 2 and 3). There were always at least three people who could give me the answers. So not all is lost! Although, of course, Korea was the most requested country in the game. Just for fun, I pretend that I don't know where it is (hovering around Thailand and the like)... oh, the protests!

Thanks so much for your fun lessons, I am a bit worried about some of your photo choices. I have had to change 2 photos that you have used because they show boobs. I just want you to be aware. I teach all boys so they would have noticed and that could mean trouble.
Title: Re: The World Quiz Lesson (Hearts, Guns & Bombs)
Post by: vitamin-d on November 29, 2010, 07:52:22 am
Hey meganm, thanks for bringing that to my attention. I hadn't noticed.
I've flicked through the PPT again but still cannot find these two photos - can you let me know which slides they are on?

EDIT - found the Japan one; I hadn't noticed that at all.
Then again, neither did my students and I ran it for 18 classes...
Let me know about the other...

Also, my school's pretty laid back with mild sex & violence.

Post by: taebaekluke on November 29, 2010, 12:12:49 pm
Great idea for a quiz. They went mad for it, as expected.

I cut it down a lot, because i'm only using this as a time filler for the last 20 minutes, and I changed some of the questions because they would have been too easy for my grade 2s. And... Spanish is the first language of South America, right?

I changed the fonts too (Arial).
Title: Re: The World Quiz Lesson (Hearts, Guns & Bombs)
Post by: vitamin-d on November 29, 2010, 12:49:24 pm
You are correct, Spanish is a main language of South America.
(I should know, I'm learning it and heading there in a few months)
However, I was looking for the main language (most spoken), which, in information I found, was said to be Portuguese: with 52% control - thanks to Brazil alone.

However, having now checked Wiki  ;) it seems  the information I found was out of date.
Up-to-date - Spanish (193,243,411 speakers)and Portuguese (193,197,164)
It's damn close, though...

Hi all,

Since I teach at a Christian school, I feel as though I have to be a bit more careful about the material I present to my students.  I have taken out the bombs and guns and replaced them instead with snakes and whips.  I also replaced the UK underwear with a regular UK flag in the shape of the UK.  Hopefully someone else can also make use of this edit.  Thanks for the great powerpoint!

EDIT: the last version I uploaded I forgot to change the bombs and guns for the country questions.  This new version has all of it modified.

I tried this lesson last night with my new after school class (club activities). It’s only 4 students so we missed out on my favourite interaction of when the students choose which team to shoot but this was hands down the most fun I have had in the classroom.

It helped that the students personalities would make them ideal for a reality show (smart but serious one, sweet but dumb, dumb but confident, smart with short temper) because they were absolutely hilarious. One team would always take about 5 or 6 minutes of intense negotiations before giving the usually wrong answer but the much superior team over reached and lost 3 lives and the game on an Ocean question.

Queue the undeserving winners breaking out a victory dance interrupted by the smart but serious one with a dead pan expression “teacher, teacher….. I am really upset now”. More victory dancing and then “teacher …………. I am angry now”.

So we had to have a replay :)

I gave them the option of going home at 7:30 pm. Club activities are scheduled 6pm to 8 pm but it gets really dark and 8 pm is cutting it fine with some of their busses. THEY CHOOSE TO STAY AND FINISH THE GAME RATHER THAN GO HOME!!!!!

Thanks for posting this lesson!

Many of my high school boys found the questions to be tough, but there were always one or two kids in the class who knew the right answers. The girls got into the lesson too, but the game did go a little faster then expected. Adding and customizing the questions are the key, and grouping friends together makes more of an exciting class.

I haven't checked the snakes and whips version specifically, but I think you might be reading that one wrong? I had the same problem the first time through and it was embarrassing :/ you have to click the colored text to get a picture of the statue of liberty, and that's the correct answer, not the bell on the question page.

Post by: katiekat on July 01, 2011, 12:54:26 pm
Holy moly! This game is a RIOT.  Great job, man!

My modifications: I use stamps in my class so for about 10 minutes or so of review I let the students answer questions like, "What is Chile famous for?" in full sentences to get stamps.  Then, to make the game more interesting for all the teams (my girls are really smart and would probably get all the questions right), I don't let one team answer over and over again.  What I do is make the girls write the answer down first, then stand up and show me that they wrote it, then say it.  Any team can try for any question, and it's always a race to see who is first.  Oh yeah, and I DON'T show them the choices on most of the multiple choice questions, which makes it more fun too.

This is a fantastic ppt quiz!

Some minor quibbles:
The slide from Japan contains both the imperial flag of Japan, and boobs. Both of these images might not go over so well with your coworker (although I'm sure the students wont mind lol).

Also, I feel very uncomfortable with having Germany represented by a big picture of Hitler.
Most of my students really don't seem to understand how negative of an icon the man really is, especially to Germans... I can almost picture them having the living crap beaten out of them while vacationing in Germany for doing a sieg heil.

The slide for the States shows a picture of the Liberty Bell as well as the Statue of Liberty when the answer is the latter...
