Skype Quiz – Millionaire Style

Last week two schools and four classes met online for a Skype Quiz.  We first met Miss Fraser and the Frole Islanders earlier this year through a Mystery Skype.  In the chat that followed the Mystery Skype we discovered that both classes were learning about Asia.  So, what better way to celebrate a term’s learning than to have a quiz?

Earlier in the week, 5/6JC and 4/5P worked in small teams to brainstorm multiple choice questions for Miss Fraser and her class.  The list was narrowed down to ten questions.

Before the quiz began we allocated roles.  There were quiz masters to ask questions, fact fairies to share information after each of the questions we asked and contestants to answer questions.  We also had a ‘music man’ to play the theme song, performers for the ad breaks, photographers,  a camera person and Google Gurus.

Each school/team had four life lines:

* Ask the Audience (the class voted on each of the answers)

* 50:50 (two wrong answers were eliminated, leaving two possible answers)

* Phone a Friend (contestant ‘phones’ a classmate)

* Google Guru (a student with internet access can Google the answer)
 
Killara Primary School asked us ten multiple choice questions first.  They were all about China because that was this term’s Unit of Inquiry. You can see how many you would have answered correctly by clicking on the slideshow below.
 

 

We used three of our life lines and won $5000.  Next, we quized Killara about different countries in Asia because that is what they have been learning about this term.  You can test your general knowledge of Asia with the ten questions we wrote below.

 


 
Our Skype Quiz was caught on film and you can watch a very edited version of it in the clip below.
 

 

Thank you to Killara Primary School for a great afternoon and congratulations on winning $500 000 imaginary dollars.  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
