New Challenges :)

February5

The world national flagsOkay after some pretty persistent demands from a few Y8s here are some more challenges for you to get your teeth into.

These games ask you to match the countries of each continent with their flags.  When you complete them you need to print screen it so that I can see that you have completed the quiz with a maximum of 5 attempts – Good luck 🙂

These 5 are the only quizzes on this site that count.  The rest are too easy!

The biggest populations in the world

January27

world-population-day

 

There are 7 billion of us on the planet but where are we all? 

I though that this was hard after the first 15 but maybe that’s just me. 

Good Luck!

You have to try to name all the countries in the world in just 15 minutes.  I’ve only managed this twice because of the time constraints.  If you manage this its two postcards!!!

Rivers

The aim is to name the 25 longest rivers in the world. If you’re not sure you can use the “quit” option during the game and it will show you the right answer so that you can learn them.

Once you manage to complete all 25 in the given time, print out the completed quiz and bring it in to get a postcard

Good Luck

Y9 Sporcle Challenge

May15

Right ladies

Following today’s terrifying lesson where it became very obvious that the USA and Canada are the same place as far as a lot of you are concerned, I have added two challenges for you to complete.

Songbirds-of-North-America

They are both worth a post card if you complete them and print them off. You must complete all of the countries (i.e. you can’t miss any or get them wrong!!)

Good Luck!!

North America and the Caribbean = http://www.sporcle.com/games/g/northamerica

Valentines Day Y7 challenge

  Right ladies This one is a bit trickier but it is doable.  The link below should take you to a counties puzzle.  It uses flash so you can’t do it on an ipad or things like that.  You can do it in school or at home and print it off or print screen the finished piece and email it to me.  When you’ve managed it, print screen the completed map and bring it in to get a postcard. Good luck – any problems let me know 🙂
