Who doesn’t love food?
You can get students to learn anything you want if you involve food somehow! Use these fun bell ringers to get your students creatively thinking. You can use these in a writing/ELA class or even a health class. Have fun with it. Incorporate some of the food holidays into your lessons. On National Popcorn Day, bring in popcorn to share with the students. Let students sample a few teas from around the world for National Hot Tea Month. Let students bring in their favorite brownies or soups on their respective holidays. It will get their taste buds-a-tingling and their minds-a-thinking! Plus it gets students involved and motivated to learn what you want to teach each day!
Use these as 5 minute bell ringers or those few transitional minutes. For a few of the cards, your students will need access to a computer. You can choose which cards you use. You do not have to use them in sequential order.
There is no card for January 19, as there is (surprisingly) no food holiday that day. There are a few more days with no “holiday” where I used monthly holidays. The first set of cards in mostly black and white are for using as task cards. You can cut them out and put them in a basket for students to complete individually or you can put them on a ring and read them out daily. The second set of cards (slides) are full-page and in color for projecting onto a whiteboard. This is best for whole class use.
If you like these activities, be sure to check back soon for my February bell ringers. They will be posted by mid-January. March through December will follow so you can have the entire year!
Please look at the preview for samples of the task card pages and full slide pages!
