Get Active: Newspaper Quiz

Tuesday 14th November 2017

For this game you will need multiple copies of a recent newspaper with one copy for each team and one for the leader running the activity. Get the young people into teams of 3 or 4 and give each team a copy of the same newspaper. The leader should call out a question based on the contents of the paper. If necessary giving a page number, but you could start off without that and see how quickly they are able to find the answer. Questions could include things such as the result of a sporting event (one they were unlikely to know off the top of their heads), what time a programme is coming on or any detail related to content in the newspaper. The first team with the correct answer wins and should be given a point, make sure you ask questions from lots of different parts/pages of the newspaper as teams may well slit the paper up to make it easier for them to find the answer. A bonus point could be awarded at the end of the game for the first team to bring you the newspaper back in one piece and in the correct order.
