Did you take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? What a great way to raise awareness for an important cause---and well worth the bucket of ice water that gets pour over your head!
Now you can bring this activity into your class/therapy room and share it with your students, however, the name and rules have been changed slightly to fit the needs of your students. The “SLP Speech Bucket Challenge” is inspired by the ALS Ice Bucket challenge but made into a practical and motivating game for the classroom.
The first student to fill their bucket with 20 ice cubes is the winner. But don’t pick a melting ice cube or you will have to put your ice cubes back into the pile!
•Your choice of two versions of the bucket graphic to appeal to various age groups plus one extra bucket to write in your own challenge title.
•One sheet of 12 colored ice cubes.
•One sheet of 12 melting ice cubes.
•One sheet of black/white line drawing ice cubes for use with the goals you are targeting.
**One cut and fold dice pattern with ice cube numbers included
Want to add a little more fun to the Speech Bucket Challenge??? Let the winner pour a bucket full of “ice water” on your head! NOT real ice water of course! Fill a plastic container with any of the following: Styrofoam “peanuts”, cotton balls, shredded paper, confetti (or any other material that is soft and safe!) The rest of the group must clean up the mess when the fun is over!
