 Adult's quiz

This is based on the 2011 ‘Living for One World’ theme.(so be warned that some of the statistics are no longer the most up to date)    

40 questions are split into groups of 10 themes: ‘Environment’, ‘Religion’, ‘International Development’ and ‘Pop Culture/news’.  There is also a picture round also based on the theme. You don't have to use all of it; if you use the Word version - you can select sections to print. The pdf versions are less flexible but retain their fomat reliably.  

The quiz can be used at almost any event, including coffee mornings, evening meals and pub gatherings. There is a mix of easy and challenging questions, so everyone should be able to join in!

Suitable for children aged 11 upwards. in youth clubs, guides and scouts. It is also appropriate for schools as many questions relate directly to required learning outcomes of various secondary school curriculums, including Citizenship, RE, geography and PSHE.
