house Feud - A Fun Game For Children Too

I was asked by Camp Med, a licensed day care program and summer camp sponsored by the City of South Pasadena, to give a presentation to our campers about the upcoming Summer Olympics, as I would be leaving for Beijing shortly to work on the Games. I view if I just talk and the kids just listen, it could get kind of boring. So instead, I proposed an Olympic house Feud.

The campers were divided into 4 groups. The winning group would each receive a prize. The way it worked is that I would ask a ask and give one exact group a chance to respond. Unlike television house Feud where only one person can participate, here anyone from the group could chip in. The team leader would then try to write down the best answer. If the respond was wrong, the ask would move to the next group. If one group was noticeably weaker, they would get the easier questions.

What struck me is how engaged the kids got. You could see the wheels turning. They started thinking. They wanted to give the right answer. They wanted to win. They were having fun and so were the other counselors.

The questions asked required separate skills, memory, thinking and also listening (to what I had talked about throughout the summer). Due to the internet, it was very easy to come up with questions as multiple trivia, kids and information sites exist.

When I returned from the Olympics, the kids were very curious about my experience. It was as if the Olympic house Feud had opened the door for them to be aware and curious in the Olympics. The event was such a success that we are following it up with a Halloween house Feud. For Halloween house Feud, more jokes and questions with an element of levity will be included. And there will be more questions that our younger kids can answer.

Attached are the questions (with answers) to both house Feuds:
