Those last few weeks of school can always be the hardest! You've got tons of things on your plate, and your kids are ready for summer. If you're in need of some fun incentives, activities, and resources to help you survive those last few days/weeks, you'll LOVE what I've included in this product!
*Each of the 6 activities includes an "Ideas for your Day" page so that you can plan multiple activities with that theme.
Here are the resources I've included in this product:
1. Bubblegum Bonanza– spend part of your day with bubblegum fun! Teach students how to blow bubbles, how bubblegum is made, read bubblegum books, and have a bubblegum blowing contest!
2. Paper Airplane Party– Learn how to make a paper airplane, and then host a paper airplane throwing contest. Also follow the scientific method with designing paper airplanes that fly far! My students love it when we challenge another class for double the fun!
3. Kickball– Partner with another class in your grade-level and take the kids out for some good, old-fashioned kickball. Use my resources to teach the history of kickball.
4. Lemonade Tasting– It’s always nice to have a refreshing glass of lemonade on a hot day. During this time, follow a recipe to make homemade lemonade and pink lemonade. Then, taste them both and vote on which one tastes the best!
5. Homemade Ice cream– Have your students ever made homemade ice cream? It’s actually easier than you may think! I’ve included a recipe, comprehension questions, and writing resources!
6. Let’s Make Slime – Your students will love an ooey, gooey, science activity! Follow the recipe included to make slime with your students! I’ve also included read aloud ideas and resources!
All of these activities are great for after state-wide testing OR as a fun, daily countdown with your students. Choose one activity a week for the last month of school, or complete them all in ONE week! It's really up to you! They can be used however you see best fit.
**If you simply need some fun, engaging, hands on activities to use ANY time - these are perfect!!
