End of the Year Clue Game

END of the YEAR FUN DAY Activity Fun for the whole class. Great way to wrap up a mystery unit. Oh no, the test is missing from the teachers desk. The students must figure out; who took it? where it is hidden? what was used to conceal it? Students play a whole class game of clue.

The National Poetry Competition Deadline: 31 October 2013 This is an annual poetry prize established in 1978. It is run by the UK-based Poetry Society and accepts entries from all over the world, with over 10,000 poems being submitted to the competition each year. Winning has been an important milestone in the careers of many well-known poets. The first prize is £5,000 and the top three winners are published in Britain's leading poetry magazine, Poetry Review.

Hey Guys, Good News! We've extended the deadline for poem submission due to great public interest. Now, you can upload or edit your poems by September 15, 2013.
