Purpose of Activity:
The purpose of these Quiz Time Cards is to engage your students in learning about a number of random topics ranging from animals to countries to planets to famous explorers. There are a number of ways that the Quiz Time Cards could be used in your classroom.
Each card contains a fact and four statements about a specific topic (skunk, ladybugs, Jupiter, the Great Wall of China, Italy, bagpipes, etc.). Students are asked to choose the one statement that does not belong (or is false).
Included in This 20-page resource:
– Teacher Tips (2-pages)
– 50 Quiz Time Cards (13-pages; cover & directions)
– Quiz Time Student Answers handout (2-pages)
– Quiz Time Answer Key (2-pages)
– Quiz Timer Certificates (1-page; 4 certificates)
There are multiple ways to use these cards in your classroom:
The cards could be printed off, cut up, and then bound together with a metal ring. If you do bind the cards together, a cover and a page on student directions is provided on the last page of the cards. The cards could then be placed somewhere in your classroom for students to work on when they have some free time. You will need a few “Quiz Time Student Answers” handouts and a “Quiz Time Answer Key” available.
Partner or Group Activity:
The cards could also be used with a partner or a group. If you choose this option, 2-3 cards could be randomly passed out to each partner group or group.
The cards could also be used as an entire class. You could display a card using a projection system and have your students write down what statement they believe does not belong. You could make a contest out of it if you wanted to.
In addition to determining which statement does not belong, students could also be asked to research a topic and then share some interesting facts.
Quiz Time Student Answers Handout:
This is a handout that students could use to record their answers. This handout also provides a Quiz Timer rating based on how many answers they got correct.
Quiz Time Answer Key:
It’s important that students refer to the answer key after they have completed the entire task. The reason for this is so they don’t see the answers before they try to figure out which statement does not belong.
In a few cases, there could be discrepancies in terms of what statement does not belong. If this would occur, you may have to have a discussion and possibly conduct some research together.
