Creating Quiz Boxes Quizzes through Critical Thinking

16 11 2008

High quality Quiz Boxes quizzes aren’t necessarily easy to produce. If they were, I’m sure I’d have a lot more quizzes available at this site for download. But the activity of creating quizzes is a lesson in critical thinking in itself. Highly educational and promoting teamwork.  And as a classroom activity, creating a Quiz Boxes quiz can be almost as enjoyable as playing Quiz Boxes!

For a start, if you want a full game, you have to come up with 30 questions (and answers) and one Quiz Boxes Breaker question.  Furthermore, the questions need to range in difficulty within each category, from easier to harder as the dollar amounts increase. This is where the challenge for question makers comes in.

But to make it easier, Jenny Cottle (one of the quiz contributors to this site) has shared a “Question-Starter Chart” that she found at Education Oasis – a simple single page that you (and your class) can use to get your Quiz Boxes quizzes going.  And remember, when you’ve made your great Quiz Boxes quiz, Share it with the World!
