2013 newsthink photo quiz for schools For questions, go to redcross.org.uk/quiz
There are two versions of the quiz powerpoint. One with photos and questions, the other with just photos. To find both go to redcross.org.uk/quiz Important note: The quiz takes a light-hearted approach. It is meant to be fun as well as educational. However, because it is news-related it refers to events that have badly affected very many people. Please be encouraged to maintain sensitivity to dignity and respect - keeping in mind the people behind the stories, even while enjoying the fun and argument of the quiz. Please also note that this quiz includes a photograph of people being treated with first aid as well as photos of people with nose bleeds. If you or your students are upset by the sight or discussion of blood then it's possibly best to avoid round 1 and round 3.
Notes The photographs supplied with this quiz are fully protected by copyright. A license for educational use for each photograph has been acquired by the education unit of the British Red Cross. This allows schools and other educational organisations to use them freely, without payment, as part of the quiz package. The licence does not extend beyond this use. This means that anyone wishing to put the images on a website, crop or edit them, or use them in any other way than for the quiz, must first contact the copyright holder and negotiate a licence for the use they require. Picture agencies take violation of licences very seriously. Some charge punitive damages for unauthorised use of copyright photographs in some cases up to five times the standard licence fee. If you are unsure whether your proposed use is acceptable, please contact the copyright holder. The British Red Cross will be unable to assist anyone who violates the terms of the licence. This quiz was written by PJ White of alt62 and published in December 2013. Sign up to receive newsthink: free news-related education resources every fortnight via email redcross.org.uk/signup
