"Can I Chew Gum in Class?" and other annoying questions kids ask...Instead of simply reading your rules to the students on the first day, let them find the answers to their most common questions in this back-to-school activity.
Every week, Zoinks asks a question that encourages kids to do research in the library. For example, the question might be “what year was Charlotte’s Web published?” or “what country is directly north of Moldova?” When the kids find the answer, they write it down with their source and “feed it” to Zoinks. If they’re correct, they’re entered into a weekly prize drawing. Such a cool idea!
