Kahoot! What a fun trivia game! What started off as a youth activity during the weekend of the American Romney Breeders Association’s Annual Dinner/Meeting developed into so much more. Many thanks to Georgina Anderson for using her very technical skills to get it up and running. The game started on October 13th and remained opened until Sunday the 17th at 11pm. There were four levels of skill with questions running from 10 questions for the Juniors, and 15 in the other three levels. Scores were based on correctness of answers but also, there was a time factor involved. Positive feedback was received from our youth, as well as, more mature sheep folk. No prizes were given, it was there just for the thrill of the adventure and bragging rights if you scored high. When signing in for Kahoot! a nickname was required, so the identities are not easily known but if any individual scored high, they were quick to share their identity with whomever would listen.
The Junior section had 21 games played, the Intermediate had 20, 27 for the Seniors and 43 for the Professionals. A total of 111 games were played. It provided much fun and laughter and some discussion on who was right! The game was planned to be a fun and learning experience, and I think it was a hit. Many encouraging comments were received and I hope you all had as much fun as we did.
Any fun or educational activity for Juniors that can be shared with ARBA’s youth committee would be much appreciated. Sometimes you need a fresh suggestion so as not to become stale. Looking forward to seeing some of you in Kentucky at NAILE or at some other destination to be determined.
