This past weekend I spent an obscene amount of hours working on a unit study for my kids on Endangered Species using our DK Eyewitness Book Endangered Species. (links at bottom of post) For this unit study the kids will create a quiz.
I created pictures for the front of each quiz card and question prompts to help lead them to the question. I also made 2 question templates. One is basic question and answer format the other is multiple choice. For Each section there is a subject card with info and a picture for the front, and a question and answer I made for the back.
Runners first cards (back)
Runner & Ko-Ko whined a bit about having to think up their own questions. Imagine having to think, the horror...LOL.
Runner was thrilled when done. He got to question people and be the one with the answers. This is of course the point to making a quiz: thinking and then playing over and over to learn the info. I used self adhesive laminate from the dollar store. I put it on the front nd back of each card to make them last. If it didn't take so long I would do lots of these. I will probably make some over the summer to bring out a few throughout the year.

I think this book is loaded with lots of great info. A couple of the pages I made have a website to check out for additional learning. Although I love this book, for those of you who do not believe in evolution then I do not recommend it. the book (and therefore my unit study) cover the topic of evolution and the Earth as ancient. Just wanted to put that out there since as homeschoolers we all have different beliefs that are important to us when educating our children.
