  1. Famous and Inspirational Men’s Quiz - download resource


We all have someone we are inspired by in life.  This quiz looks at all the inspirational men who we may have watched on TV, read about, or learned about their place in history.  From film stars to activists to political leaders and sportsmen.  There are so many to celebrate, especially on International Men’s Day on the 19th November every year.

Quizzes are fantastic for encouraging people to use their cognitive skills in a fun way.  This activity can get competitive at times but reassure people that it doesn’t matter if they get the answers wrong. It’s all about getting the grey matter working!

Play the quiz just for fun – or keep score and award the winner with a small prize.  The quiz is available as a question sheet, in case anyone would like to do the quiz on their own first. Then you can share the answers with them afterwards.

  8. Spend time at the end of the quiz continuing any conversations the quiz may have sparked
