This Culture primary resource is a fun, festive quiz for children, covering a range of Christmas themes and topics. How did Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem? What was Ebenezer Scrooge’s catchphrase? Which country is the Christmas tree a gift from?

Pupils will be asked 24 questions about Christmas in our National Geographic Kids’ Christmas quiz primary resource, divided into six rounds: festive trivia, films & books, music, food, Christmas around the world and the Nativity story.

The teaching resource can be used either as a printed handout for each pupil, or for display on the interactive whiteboard for a group/class activity.

Answers to the quiz can be found at the bottom of this page.
