What a great positive group activity! Have one person sit on a chair in front of a white board while the others wrote a positive phrase about them. Take a picture to give to each person. A very creative and positive group activity.
Fingerprint poetry is a great way to start a poetry unit or the beginning of the year. High school or middle school students can really express their individuality. Could blow up a photocopy of the child's finger print and use the lines as guides.
A reading fair instead of a science fair! This seems like a really fun and educational way to get kids engaged in reading instead of just doing a book report. I would love to do an activity like this as like an end of the year project!
Question and Answer board - give students the answer and they have to write a word problem that matches the answer. You can have students do any operation or even 2 step problems. I have my students check each other& questions the next day.
