Can you believe this is our second Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration in the shadow of Covid? But don’t let that stop you from celebrating in a big way! Israel Pursuit connects your students with others from around the world, educates them about Israel’s history and culture and actively engages them in a competition for exciting prizes.

Perfect for in-person or remote classrooms, the content and contests cover Israel’s history, culture and current events. This year regional winners will come together for a live, online, celebrity-studded final tournament on Zoom for epic prizes.

How does the Israel Pursuit work?

All schools are eligible to register for Israel Pursuit. Once you sign up, share the four videos and two podcasts provided with your students. The questions in the regional games are based on these.
Each video and podcast is accompanied by educational resources that will inspire discussion while preparing for the regional game.

Educators who sign up will receive a link to the regional Kahoot! game. The game should be played anytime between April 5th and 16th.

Students participating in the Kahoot! game will be ranked based on the number of correct answers and the speed in which questions are answered. The top student in each of the 10 regions will win top Unpacked swag, be featured on our social media channels and will be invited to compete in the live, online, celebrity-studded Tournament of Champions Zoom event on April 27th.

A grand prize of $500 will be awarded to the winner of the Tournament of Champions. Second place prize is $250 and third place $100. The grand prize winner’s school will receive a customized trophy.
