7. Not so First Chapter Friday

I know that many of you have a First Chapter Friday. What if instead of first chapter, you would read the last chapter. Now that must baffle them! Don’t forget! Pretend all the time that this is the first chapter, no matter what they say.

6. Word Search Puzzle With No Words

Just give them this word search (save image and print) and ask them to find as many words as possible. You can give them a random list of words or you can tell them that there is a secret message inside and they have to find them. Give them 5-10 minutes to do it! The trick is that there is no word in there.

5. The Brown E’s

Tell your students you baked some brownies for them. Instead of the delicious brownies, place in a casserole dish large letters E printed on brown paper. Watch their faces as you serve them.

4. Asteroid or Potato

Use NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day from 2020 to announce your students that there was discovered a new asteroid. See the whole story HERE!

3. Marshmallow Farming

Watch Marshmallow Farming YouTube video. Short answer response on Padlet about how a marshmallow shortage would influence s’mores business. Finally, click link which takes them directly to Rick Astley “Never Gonna Give You Up” video.

2. Flip the page

Print on both side of the page the following text: You are going to solve a very difficult exercise. Trust the process! You can do it. Follow the instructions without thinking. You have only 5 minutes. Ready, steady, go! For instructions flip the page!

Watch them flipping the page back and forward! :))

1. Chocolate Dipped Brussels sprouts
