Web Design A WebDesign Quiz show
This page is part of the Web Design project.

Generating the questions for your Quiz Show edit

Creating questions on your own is hard, so it might be best to decide on small teams of two or three people for the quiz show, and then create your questions in your teams.

Each individual is to come up with 3 questions each using the resources below and the help of their team. After reviewing each question with your team, write it up on an individual piece of card (or paper) with your name at the bottom (so you won't be asked your own question!).

Headline text edit
