Give your students a daily brain teaser. There are cards for the entire year. Trivia seekers will love these.
There are 176 cards which contain a question about science, social studies, spelling, math or literature. Some questions may be answered right away while others may require a little thinking. Hopefully, all students will find at least one category in which they can find success. I have included ice cream cones which can be built to mark the students' progress as well as an answer key. I hang up a Brain Freeze sign and change the Brain Freeze card every day. Two different signs are included.
