This type of quiz is best carried out with a 'substantial' dictionary rather than a pocket-sized kids' dictionary which will only have a limited number of words and will probably make the exercise too simplistic. Parents and teachers should also thoroughly check that the dictionary being used by the children has sufficient content and scope to fulfil the requirements of each of the questions; if not, the dictionary quiz questions will need to be modified to suit.
