National Geographic 'Weird But True' Quiz Game
« on: December 01, 2011, 10:26:05 am »
I made this quiz game (using the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire template)  for my extra class.  It's all of the questions from NatGeo's"Weird But True" Kids Quiz.  Basically, a good review of random vocab with some cool facts!

ONE MODIFICATION: The answer to Question 8. should be TRUE, not False. Sorry about that!

I had the students write their answers on markerboards in groups of 3-4. If their answer is correct they win the points, if they are wrong they lose the points. (Ex: +5 for correct answers, -5 for incorrect answers.)

Enjoy!

You can find the questions and more information about the answers here: http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/kids/games/puzzlesquizzes/quizyournoodle-ultimate-weird-but-true/

I couldn't open it.  "No text converter is installed for this file type."

Nice post! I'm always happy with trivia games  :D

Watch out with your font choices: I'm seeing it as white letters on a white background: not easy to see lol!

Was this game a review of a vocabulary based class?

@SpaceRook, you could try downloading this: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=6, a lot of people seem to have the same problem, not sure why!

@kyndo, the fonts might not be working when you download it, change the background color if you need to! I played the game without any prior lesson, just a good way to get them speaking and test their knowledge if you need any time fillers. Hope it helps!

I can see that the link in the original post is a ppt file, but when I click it the download is a php file that can't be opened. Anyone know why that is?

It's not just this file that causes a problem, it's all files if you're using Firefox.  A workaround is here.

Great game thanks so much. Will use it for my after school class! I also saw your font as white letters on a white background, but it was an easy fix to go through and change it! Thanks for sharing! I also had to change some of the numbers because they were in a different order. But that was also an easy fix. I am attaching an updated version with changes. Thanks again for posting. I could have never made this!
