Whiz Quiz began in the Fort Worth ISD during the 1977-78 school-year at Paschal High School, but quickly spread to a District-wide competition in high schools and middle schools. Five-member teams representing different schools compete against the clock and each other. There is a 6th grade team and a 7/8th grade team. It is a Jeopardy style competition. Our students learn to compete and succeed in the academic arenas. See Ms. McKown to join the team!
Below are sample questions from a competition.
- To which of the animal kingdom do bacteria belong?
- Saul Bellow’s favorite of his own novels, Henderson, the Rain King, tells of an American’s adventures on which continent?
- What do we call the offspring of a raccoon, a hyena, a cheetah, or a panda?
