NOW WITH BONUS TASK CARDS & WORKSHEETS to provide you with flexibility!!!!! Given that the GAME SHOW takes 40-60 minutes to play, and sometimes we just don't have that much time....or that the GAME SHOW works best projected on a large screen, and sometimes the technology breaks down....or that there are days when we walk into the classroom and just know that a whole classroom game is not going to fly that day....and sometimes students need more quiet, reflective activities......I have included more than 6 additional formats to teach Julia Cook's "Bubble Gum Brain"
HOW I USE THIS LESSON:
As the research says, creative play really is the language of childhood. No matter the topic covered, I have found that as long as the lesson involves a bit of art, role-playing, games, and some freedom of movement, students are engaged. In this lesson, students answer through acting, drawing, imagining, taking risks, and problem solving as a team.
I hope that your students enjoy this activity, having serious fun learning!
