This superlatives quiz challenges students’ knowledge and skill of animals, world, and science superlatives. Unlike your typical quiz where you answer questions, students have to create superlative questions.
For example, “World Superlatives” for 100$ is Mount Everest. When students see Mount Everest, they have to think of a question that uses a superlative to uniquely describe it. In this case, the correct question is “What is the tallest mountain in the world?”
First, create teams of 3 or 4 students. Next, pick a category and a money amount. If you scroll further below this worksheet, there are examples of questions and answers. The first team that raises their hands can create a question.
If they create a question correctly, they earn that amount of money. But if they get it wrong, they lose that amount of money. Finally, the team with the most money at the end wins the game.
