Have you ever run out of ideas? Perhaps you got to school and had no clue what to do that day. Know what you’re teaching but need a creative way to practice? The 10 Last-Minute Activities for the High School or Middle School Classroom can be implemented for all subject areas the morning of with ease and effectiveness. They allow students to collaborate and hold individual students accountable. These highly- engaging activities will not only break up the monotony (especially in math) but provide a level of structure that increases time on task and promotes student academic achievement.
I use these activities to spice up my high school math class. They can easily be used in the English Language Arts, Science or History (Social Studies) classroom as well. Really, these activities can work for any subject area, even foreign language and art.
Each activity will have a directions page for the teacher and a “Rules to Read” page intended to be read to the class. With these supporting features you really can be ready in less than 15 minutes in most cases.
