Welcome your students with this Back-to-School Sense of Humor Test.
Students are challenged to spot the correct endings to the beginnings of humorous statements uttered by real people, including Yogi Berra, various politicians, George Burns, Dolly Parton, and Groucho Marx to name a few. The two "tests" of 35 items each offer opportunities for youngsters to polish their internet research skills.
The companion graphic organizer for writing, entitled "I Couldn't Stop Laughing!" requires students to pinpoint a particular event from summer break with maximum snicker-power--a variation on the "What I Did Last Summer" theme.
Also included is an idea for using this activity to create multiple bulletin board dispalys.
Six total pages including full answer keys.
