Fling the Teacher - History Quiz Games

Fling the Teacher is a website containing 68 history quiz games. All of the quizzes have at least fifteen questions and a few of the games have more than 100 questions. The average is 30-45 questions per quiz. Prior to starting each quiz game students can create their own custom game character.

If you are a Windows user you can download, for free, the Fling the Teacher Content Generator which allows you to create your own versions of Fling the Teacher.

Fling the Teacher is one of the resources that I learned about by joining the NCSS Ning last night.

Applications for Education
The quiz games on Fling the Teacher are primarily about topics in European History although there are also some quizzes about topics in US History. You can locate quizzes by topic or by age group.
