SCM QUIZ WIZ (CHILDREN AND THE WORLD)


CHILDREN & THE WORLD
(The First FREE E-Book of
SCM QUIZ WIZ™ Series)


SCM QUIZ WIZ™ is a registered trademark standing for an everlasting series of Quiz books catering to the intellectual needs of “all children in the age-group 10-100”. SCM QUIZ WIZ™ series books have been developed on the concept that knowledge cannot be ‘imposed’ but ‘encouraged’. Psychological studies carried out all over the world have clearly testified that most children do not want to study because knowledge has been made a ‘burden’ on them .... a boring experience, and learning a fearful event with the trauma of ‘examination’. 

SCM QUIZ WIZ™ helps in expansion of a child’s knowledge by ‘encouraging’ them to solve easy-to-difficult level questions presented in a multiple-option Quiz format. Each question has a ‘hint’ for answer. These hints do not only prompt them to guess the right answer but also motivate them to learn more about a certain event, person or place.  An Answer Section helps them to score and evaluate on their own, without being feared of teachers or hesitant of their peers.

Under SCM QUIZ WIZ™, we present (or intend to present in the near future) a wide array of Quizzes on varied subjects ranging from science to literature, sports to cinema, arts to culture, countries to lifestyles, myths to fact, and much more....

SEE A TYPICAL HINT SECTION

HINT SECTION



SCM QUIZ WIZ does not believe in ‘imposing’ knowledge or making it a boring experience for a child. The purpose of our Quiz program is to help and encourage you to learn and not just to ‘test’ or ‘challenge’ you. Therefore, we strongly advise the students to refer to this HINT SECTION whenever they are in doubt with regard to a certain question. The hints are designed to give you some ‘additional’ information in relevance and, also, to arouse your curiosity to learn more on the topic. When a hint is not given intentionally, it is marked as N.A. and the font size of that question is slightly bigger.
