Recently I got to plan my son’s 5th grade, and last elementary school, class party. I shot a hand full of ideas over to the teacher to ask the kids about. They voted and overwhelming choose to have a trivia party. Sweet, sounded easy enough. (They choose to watch a vintage holiday movie at the winter party, so it was about time for me to have to put a little more effort into this room mom thing anyway.)
With the rage of Trivia Crack these days, I thought, why not make it a Trivia Crack Themed Party! My boys love to play it, although a lot of the questions are hard for them.
Supplies were found at the Dollar Store. Kept things colorful and simple so I could set up and tear down in the 1 hour slot for our class party.
I used Kahoot! to create the interactive game (more on that below). I don’t like how it keeps score, so I created this score board and a boys and girls sign for each team. I also made name tags with the a Trivia Crack like spinning wheel, hole punch, and yarn. Download available at end of post.
To make the game as interactive as possible, I used Kahoot! They already use Kahoot at school for test reviews, etc., so the kids would be familiar with it. Plus everyone can play at the same time, so it would keep the party active. I searched high and low for trivia questions, and wrote a few of my own. We (my little guy helped at basketball practice) entered all the questions into a new Kahoot quiz before the party. I even found the Trivia Crack character images and uploaded them on most of the questions. If you would like to use my Kahoot! game, it’s here. There are 96 questions. (I haven’t shared a Kahoot before, so let me know if you have any trouble with it.) Each player, or team will need a device to log onto Kahoot.it and then enter the game code once you have launched the link above.
I was able to launch the Kahoot trivia game on the teacher’s laptop and using the Smart Board. I played trivia host and moved the screens as needed, I also re-read the questions so everyone had a chance to answer. This class worked in three groups per “girl” and “boy” team. I kept score by having them raise their hand if their group got it correct. I tally marked the score on the sheet for their team (you can see to the right of the Smart Board in the photo above.) Kahoot! will tell you how many teams got the answer correct, so the kids didn’t try to cheat. It will also keep score, but the point values are weird and I didn’t like how they did it. It wouldn’t be unreasonable to use their system though. I just wanted to be able to tell them who was winning by category as well as over all, more like the real game. (Final score was 138:123 boys to girls!)
For prizes I bought those tiny gold trophies (in first image) at the Dollar Store. The kids were way more into them than I expected.
Overall, it was a hit. Required no extra parents to help (if that’s an issue for you), and the kids had a great time.
