This activity is often referred to as "I have who has" and sometimes also a "gallery walk" or "walk around" or "domino activity." Whatever you choose to call it-it is fun for all students. Because Texas Independence Day and Dr. Seuss' birthday both fall on March 2nd, most elementaries celebrate the latter one. However, this activity ties the way Texas became The Republic of Texas with Dr. Seuss. Students LOVE this activity, and they always learn something when we do it. If you have a class of 20 or less, each student can have one whole piece of paper. If you have more than 20 students, you can pair them up to do a cooperative activity and make it a competition between groups.
All answers are on the top of each paper with the Texas Flag symbol on them.
All questions are on the bottom of each paper.
You can either hand each paper out to students to do the "I have-who has" game, or you can post each paper on the walls in your room and hallway to get students moving and searching kind of like a scavenger hunt. Important: Do not post the papers in the order they print off (it's in correct question/answer order).
If you choose to do the Gallery Walk/Scavenger hunt style by posting them throughout the room, students will need a piece of paper and number it 1-20.
Students know they have completed the activity correctly when they end at the same one they began. The order does not change-the only thing that will be different is where students start. If you do the I have-who has game, it will be the same order for everyone.
This is perfect for any grade level and is fun for adults as well!
