    Using The Identity Quiz

    The Identity quiz tests students' knowledge and understanding of cultural and ethnic diversity.
    • The quiz gives five factual questions with answers to choose from. Every answer comes with a right or wrong response and an explanation of this.

    • The quiz can be used as a fun starter before visiting specific activities.

    • Alternatively, it can be used between activities providing a quick learning challenge - or to round off a topic.

    • Encourage students to do the quiz as often as they like. They can always learn more from the information given in the answers.
