End of the Year Activities

Are you looking for some F-U-N end of the year activities? ITRT, Ryan Stein, just shared with me some ideas he had when he was in the classroom and they are TOO good not to share! It makes me wish I still had a class of my own :( Check out some of his AWESOME ideas:

 The 20th Reunion
What a fun way to end the school year by having a 20th school reunion! You need to prepare a speech to give to your classmates and relive some of the great memories you had at your school 20 years ago! Tell us how your elementary school prepared you for the wonderful life you have now! Parents, Siblings, Grandparents, and Great Grandparents are invited to the 20th reunion. Awesome project!!!

World Cultural Day Students are encouraged to prepare a recipe that is a family favorite and bring it in to share with their class. We will have our foods available for everyone to try as we celebrate the wonderful cultural diversity at our elementary school. This will be a school highlight and you will be full all day!

Math 24 Tournament Object of the game: Make the number 24 from the four numbers on a game card. You can add, subtract, multiply and divide. Use all four numbers on the card, but use each number only once. You do not have to use all four operations.

Solar Cookers Do you and your students like hot dogs?!? If the answer is YES…. then solar cookers are the best project ever!!! Students will create their own oven that will gather heat and light energy from the sun to cook your dogs!!! I would suggest passing these directions out soon if you plan on doing this project. Awesome time!

Mixbook Scrapbook If you have taken a bunch of pictures throughout the school year then I highly recommend you letting the students create their own Mixbook Scrapbook. They will LOVE this project!!!! Students can express their creativity on the computer individually or in pairs, pick their own templates, and use all the pictures to recap a wonderful school year. Parents will have the option of buying these scrapbooks OR you can just publish them online, which is what I have done in the past few years. Incredible project!
