Many of my kids love trivia questions. Especially when they are written for kids based on what they’ve learned. It’s a great reinforcement of factual knowledge, and it frees the teacher to focus more on big ideas and connections. Plus, it’s fun! It is a perfect in-door recess activity or to fill time on days where the normal schedule has been interrupted. It’s also perfect for centers or learning stations.
