In need of a first lesson idea? Here’s a Kahoot New Year quiz to get you started: https://create.kahoot.it/share/new-year-2021/ecfc0e04-671c-45a0-a4ba-a50a4fb0b423
You can access the quiz by clicking on the link above in your classroom. Although this works best when projected onto your board, you could potentially play using a laptop with smaller groups. You will, however, need the internet!
Click on the Play as guest button.
Click on the Classic button.
Display the page below and make sure the Game PIN is visible to all players.
Ask your learners to go to www.kahoot.it on their mobile phones and join using the Game PIN and then press the Enter button.
Each player should type their Nickname and then press the OK, go! button.
Each player’s Nickname will appear on the main game page. Once all players have joined the game, click on the Start button.
Quiz questions are displayed at the top of the screen and colour-coded multiple choice answers are displayed at the bottom. A countdown timer can be found on the left.
Players answer the questions by pressing the corresponding coloured button on their mobile phones.
Once all players have answered, or the time has run out, the correct answer is displayed on the main game page. Click the Next button.
After each question, player’s scores are displayed on the Scoreboard. Click the Next button to move onto the next question.
The quiz has 40 questions so allow around 30-40 minutes for game play. As well as standard written questions, this Kahoot features video content, so make sure your computer sound is turned on.
I will be using this quiz with all my young learner classes this week. If there are mistakes (let’s face it, there probably are), I will correct them. If you happen to notice any glaring errors, please do get in touch!
