Although I find value in standards based questions, I knew if I handed my students another packet of questions to go with a book, they would zone out before we even opened a book. Sound familiar?
I had to come up with something creative that created excitement and engagement, so I developed these standards based activities that get the students moving and doing! Using these in conjunction with the questions was a GAME. CHANGER.
