Knowledge Race

Have everyone get out a scrap sheet of paper and pen. Give them a task such as the following: Write the names of the seven continents. Write the 12 months correctly. Write down five presidents of the U.S. Then have them stand up when they are finished. The first person to stand up and get everything correct can get a prize, be first in line, or come up with another question for the class.
