The 2017 tutor2u Christmas Game - Festive Auction… | tutor2u Events

The tutor2u Christmas Lesson Game has become as hotly anticipated as the first drop of snow, mince pies & brandy cream and the John Lewis ad.

Hosts: Jon Clark, Michelle Stephenson

About this webinar

For Christmas 2017 we've once-again outspent John Lewis by designing a specially adapted version of one of all-time classic lesson activities – Auction House!

Students are grouped into teams and presented with 12 festive questions (you can add some boring specification ones if you like - bah humbug! Each team must state how many they are certain that they know the answer to. How many will they bid?

They will need to think carefully. If they say that they know the answer to a question but then reply incorrectly their total score is reduced to zero. Bid high and they can win the quiz. Bid too high and they can end up with nothing.

As always, every webinar attendee gets a fully-editable version of Festive Auction House (together with the Classic Edition - which you're bound to want to use for those revision lessons next term!
