Bird's Eye View Picture Quiz



I wasn't sure about this quiz working that well, especially with members who have visuospatial and perception difficulties. But it seemed to go down well, so I'm sharing it with you. Also, for some reason it is one of the highest rated (in terms of hits) on the Blog. So, I thought, time for an update.





Ask members to say what their favourite place in the world and at home is.


Ask members to look at each of the pictures in turn, guessing at where they might be and answering each of the questions. There are a few clues included along the way, as well as a few well known songs for singalongs.


Encourage story telling about places visited, enjoy reminiscences and inject as much joy and laughter as you can.


PS. The photos are stills taken from 'Google Earth'. Maybe add some local pictures to make your session more relevant and enjoyable.
