Creative Writing - Trapped in a Snow Globe! Use a clear plastic bowl for the globe and Epsom salt for the snow. Have students write their own stories for what would happen if they were stuck in a snow globe.
After a long break for a snow day or days, this would help them get up and get talking to their friends in class. This would benefit you as the teacher because during this time they would get to talk about what they did over their snow days.
Goal Setting: -What can you do to make this your best year ever? Fill in the shapes with high goals for yourself. Complete the check boxes at the end of the year to see how much you've accomplished! Awesome activity for the beginning of the year!
