Quizzes & Puzzles for use in Library Time

In two books Quirky Quizzes for Lively Libraries will help students to practise a range of research skills. Each book contains quizzes and puzzles that relate to a variety of learning areas. Students will use a range of reference sources including encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases and Internet search engines to find answers to the quiz sheets.

Each unit is prefaced by a series of warm-up questions which teachers can use to focus library time and discuss issues. Each quiz sheet contains 20 questions and students will need to decide on the best information source to use for each one. For extension activities, both books contain a number of challenging crossword puzzles and word search puzzles.
