Quizzes are great at encouraging people to use their cognitive skills in a fun way. And hosting a sports quiz during a major event, say Wimbledon, also helps connect residents to the outside world.
We recommend organising teams of about eight people at the same level. And if you decide to make it competitive, make sure things still feel fun and inclusive. That way, people won’t mind getting answers wrong.
The mantra here is ‘you’re never too old to learn something new!’
Be sure to congratulate anyone who gets a correct answer – and anyone who appears to know the answer but can’t find the words to say it. This activity is all about encouraging thought.
