Christmas Around the World Trivia Quiz – PowerPoint

PowerPoint | 46 pages|Grades: 3 - 6

Inspire some Christmas cheer in your classroom with this interactive multiple choice quiz!

  • What food and drink is traditionally left out for Santa Claus in the United States of America?
  • In the Christmas song of the same name, what does the Spanish phrase ‘Feliz Navidad’ mean in English?
  • In Norway, people hide this item on Christmas Eve to keep witches and evil spirits away. What do they hide?

We have the answers in our Christmas Around the World Trivia Quiz!

Educate your students about how Christmas is celebrated around the world with this 20-question multiple choice interactive PowerPoint. The questions are broken into four categories:

  • Food and Drink
  • Songs and Stories
  • Traditions
  • The Man in Red

Each category contains five questions. The fifth question in each category is based around a photographic stimulus.

Conduct the quiz in small groups, or as a whole class. Look for opportunities to explore and discuss the Christmas traditions further, perhaps encouraging students to conduct independent research into a tradition that interests them.

To activate the interactive functions on this PowerPoint, ensure that you have ‘enabled editing’ and are viewing the PowerPoint as a ‘slide show’.

Hi, I’ve downloaded the Christmas quiz, enabled editing and viewed as a Slideshow but something has gone wrong. Whatever answer I choose, I always get a “correct’ response. It happens whether I press the Enter key, or the right arrow. Not sure what I’m doing wrong! Is there a bug in the program or something else that I need to do. Thanks, Leonie

Hi Leonie, thanks for reaching out.

I have downloaded the PowerPoint and after enabling editing and viewing it as a slideshow, it’s working fine for me across several devices. When you are pressing enter or the right arrow, you are progressing the slideshow to the next page (the ‘correct’ screen), rather than selecting an answer. To select an answer, make sure you’re using a mouse or a touch device of some sort, and you should be set!

Thanks Dean, yes that was the problem. I used the quiz yesterday and the students really enjoys it.
