Hi David Maybe its obvious to some but I'm not sure how to play and I also want to create a top 5 game as well. What is the point of it. There are always 5 answers. Do the students guess according to…Continue
I'll be posting resources here too! See this nifty Project World Cup. Students work in groups to collect info about the country , their team and history. then present to the class. Get a great schedule for the World Cup HERE.
Here is a nice ppt (attached) of all the countries in the forthcoming world cup. Test your student's knowledge! Also, this presentation is a nice interactive summary of all the rules.
Thanks Rachel, I used your quiz and played whiteboard soccer and the class loved it.
Two things to note though:
As, I think, with the original BAAM a few of the numbers link to the same questions and the questions only work once. Sorry not sure which ones.
Also New Zealanders, and I'm 99% sure Australians too, call football soccer as Americans do. While New Zealanders and Australians generally follow British English this is one of the exceptions. In New Zealand (where I'm from) football means rugby thus we call soccer soccer.
Sorry to be that guy that points out errors, again, but question 20 " _______ is the only country to have hosted the World Cup TWO times?" is incorrect. Answers: A) The UK, B) Italy C) Mexico (Mexico is the answer) . Several countries have hosted it more than once from the stats I have seen. Mexico is just one of the countires. Italy would also be a correct answer for example.
PS: I didn't see all the posts so my comments are based on the first version of the quiz, but the above is still the case.
I have a general question for all you English speakers out there. Does anyone outside of the UK and Ireland say "football" when referring to what Americans, Australians, and New Zealanders call "soccer" ? Thanks!~
