Estimated time: 15-20 minutes

This is a simple alphabet quiz, great for 3rd and 4th graders where they are starting to learn upper and lower case letters.

Each slide has different alphabets overlapping each other and the aim of the students is to guess what kind of alphabets there are in the slide. With my students, I get them into groups and give a worksheet to each and they have to write down the alphabets that they think are present.

Before getting them to write, get them to ask you "How many letters are there?" and then you tell them how many alphabets there are so that they're not writing like, more than 10 or 20.

Once you give them a sufficient amount of time to write, show them the answers by pressing next on the slide and the alphabet will come out.

All of my students were very engaged during this activity and it's great to get them to familiarise themselves with the alphabet.

Edit: Updated slides with numbers on them so it's easy to keep track and uploaded answer sheet.

    This is very cool! My kids loved it!
    I would recommend writing the number on the slide or including a printout for teachers with the answers. Because looking at them even I have no idea, lol. So I went through it before hand to write it all down. Also I dont know if it is a me problem but your worksheet prints as a B5 so I made a new A4 one with writting lines for the kids.

    I'm glad your kids loved it! and thank you for the suggestions, I'll make some edits and upload the answer sheet. But yes, I also should have pointed out that my worksheet actually prints B4 so there's more writing space for the kids
