“There’s no right way to solve it, but there’s only one right answer.”
I’m a little late to the party, but Google’s awesome techniques of asking trivia questions that push students to use search skills and operators to find the answer has been ramped up. What used to be slideshow lesson plans (which are still awesome and you can check out here), is now a completely interactive game!
Here’s out it works, described by Google themselves:
Sounds simple enough, right? Check out one of today’s trivia questions below, with a screenshot of the game platform. As you can see, each day there are three questions, increasing in difficulty, with a split-screen Google search so you don’t even have to leave the page to play!
Share with your students to help them build valuable, 21st-century search skills! Plus… it’s fun!
