Round the world Quiz
« on: March 15, 2011, 11:02:31 am »
Hey guys. Here is a little quiz I made for countries of the world.
I was giving the kids 2 points if they could guess just from the written clues and only one point if they got it with the flag. Hope it is of some use. Enjoy :P

Tiny typos:
Should be "koala" on the Australia slide.
Line on Spain slide should be either "They like to have a "siesta" here" or "They, like, have a "siesta" here" ^_^

And if you borrow this, don't forget to change the bit on the New Zealand slide about where the teacher is from, unless relevant.

Looks good!

This is great!

Just a couple of things though - Nothern Ireland is part of The UK, not England. Also, you've used the British flag next to 'England'. They're different. Thanks!

Hey :) Just FYI the United States is made up of 50 states not 52.

A koala is not a bear. It is a marsupial, but that takes a little bit of explaining. Best just to say koala.

But the game/quiz concept is sound. Thanks

Forgive my pedantry, but...

"Bagpipes" should be one word; not "bag pipes".

Scottish people generally drink whisky, not whiskey.

Salsa isn't Spanish.


It's a great PPT by the way!
