Skype Quiz

During the last week of Term 2, students on Frole Island competed in a quiz with 5/6CJ and 4/5P from Upper Plenty Primary School.

We met 5/6CJ and Miss Crowther when we Mystery Skyped with them earlier in the year. We really enjoyed the experience and having the chance to chat with the students afterwards. We discovered that we had something in common – we had been studying Asia all of Term 2 and they had been studying China for our Inquiry units.

When we headed over to the Theatre, students didn’t know what we were up to! UPPS made our experience very enjoyable – they played the ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ music for us so we felt like we were really on a quiz show. They even prepared advertisements for us for when we had to go to an ad break!

First, we asked the 10 questions for UPPS about China. They did very well and walked away with imaginary $10,000. Enough to buy us all dinner! Here are their questions – see how well you do!

Then, we were asked our 10 questions. We have all been looking at different countries in Asia so as a group, we had quite a lot of knowledge about a variety of countries. However, Miss Fraser picked us randomly to answer questions – so we weren’t guaranteed to answer a question about a country we had researched!

Overall, we won an imaginary $500,000! We decided we would all travel to Asia together and visit some of the countries we had researched.

After each question, the Fact Fairies from UPPS gave us extra information. The effort they put in was fantastic – they had independently researched these facts as something extra.

Here are the questions we were asked. How well will you do?!

These were fantastic questions and some of them had us really stumped – like the different types of rice question!

Miss Crowther made a short video of our experience. Here it is:

Thanks for a great afternoon 5/6CJ & 4/5P. We had a great afternoon and loved assessing our learning this way! We definitely enjoyed it as much as you did!

How did you do in the quizzes by yourself? What other questions would you add to either quiz? Have you ever used Skype in your classroom like this before? Tell us about it!
