Texas Quiz ShowBe a Star!


Teachers, you make the Texas Quiz Show happen. You are the ones who run the competitions in your classrooms, organize the school wide championships, and lead your teams to the state finals. Teachers are just as much a part of the winning team as the students. And winning teachers get to enjoy prizes as well.

If your school already participates in the Texas Quiz Show, here are some ways to make the Texas Quiz Show experience even more enjoyable:

  • As a class assignment, have each child make up five questions from your Texas history textbook, bring them into class and quiz each other.
  • Visit your local library or historical association and see if each of your students can come up with five questions from the materials they discovered in their visit.
  • Encourage your students to celebrate their own Texas history by bringing in a family photo or a photo from a magazine and telling the story behind it.
