Motivate students to work quietly in the classroom with a quiet critter race. Divide students into 5 teams. Assign each team a color on the board. As students work quietly, move the critters. (click on the corresponding critter and it will move forward on the board) The team to reach the end first wins! Choose a prize to give your students for working so quietly. Maybe they can get extra time working with a quiet critter, or adopt one and take it home!
