Welcome to a school bag packed with educational games and activities for use in schools, at recreation centres, in the playground or at home. The activities are primarily developed for children aged 10–14 and aim to promote healthy habits.
The Diabetes Quiz Show teaches children and young people about type 2 diabetes and the link with healthy food and exercise. The whole class can take part.
The children are divided into groups of 3–4. The quiz consists of two rounds. In the first round each group is given a sheet of questions.
The groups have 15 minutes to write down their answers. The teacher then runs through the answers in class and 1–3 points are awarded for each correct answer.
In the second round there is just one question. A correct answer scores 10 points, while an incorrect answer scores –10 points.
When you use the School Challenge activities, you support diabetes prevention by helping children to adopt healthier habits.
