Quizzes have always been one of my most favourite moments since school. Students would flock the halls whenever a quiz took place.
At times, the teachers divided the classroom into three groups, row-wise. Then, we had to compete row-wise and answer questions from the teacher. Right or wrong, the aim was to take risks to discover the answer and improve our treasury of knowledge.
Here’s a list of quizzes that schools can organise to make learning fun in their classes.
It’s important to know the way our body functions. Students can test their knowledge they have about the human body. A quiz after each chapter in the biology class can be a good idea.
Do you know? We, humans, are taller in the morning than we are at night.
For the students that are space enthusiasts, such quizzes can help them to keep their curiosity about the space alive. Give them the space quiz challenge with amazing facts.
Something like “One day on Venus is longer than one year on the Earth” will be great!
3. Food quiz
Teach the students more about what they eat and test them on how much they know about the constituents. Here, teachers can make sessions more interactive and fun. They can allow students to eat food during the quiz.
Do you know? Apples float on water because they consist of 25% air.

Did you know? The peace talks between North Korea and South Korea led to both the parties trying to bring a bigger national flag than the other in every meeting. This continued until a special meeting was held to confer the size of the flags, as they could no longer fit in the room.
Participation in sports holds as much importance as academics. Students should be encouraged to play their favourite sport. They must be aware of the rules of the game. A sports quiz can help them polish their knowledge of their favourite game.
Do you know? Shin guards are traced all the way back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans.
Geography, at times, seems uninteresting to students. Did you ever enjoy studying about the black soil with a good granular structure on the surface? The same could have been fun if you studied it out in the open on a surface that had black soil. Likewise, quizzes with winning gifts can also instil enthusiasm to learn more about geography.
Did you know that the dust from Africa can reach as far as Florida?
General knowledge quiz

Schools have now realized it’s about time! They are bringing changes to the training-testing-repeat method. The Gen Z doesn’t want to memorise dates, formulae and figures by rote. Unlike the past, students want education that can feed their curiosity while they are on the quest to add more to a knowledge base.
