Snack time doesn't have to be just for munching on crackers and apples, it can also be for feeding your students' brains and building classroom community! Fact Snacks is a brain-boosting snack time routine your students will love.
Each day, your students will learn a new "snack-size" fact, chat with their friends about their new learning, and answer thought provoking questions - all within just a few minutes while they eat their snack! Fact Snacks range from interesting to shocking to just plain weird. The best part? They're paperless and no-prep!
Five weeks of seasonal, paperless Fact Snacks are included in this download.
Your students will love the Fact Snack song! Challenge them to get their snacks from their backpack and be back at their spots before the song is over!
25 paperless, extensively researched facts are included in this download. Just pull them up on your projector or interactive whiteboard and go!
Do your students need a reminder to use their snack time wisely? These visual timers are the key to keeping them on track! Choose from 5 minute, 8 minute, or 10 minute timers.
