This fun game can be played with your class as a reward, learning opportunity or assessment. This will also keep the group engaged for at least 20 minutes, which is always nice! Scattergories can be a great time filler or substitute activity, and works fantastically for after school programs with different ages of kids! Use, themes, seasons, parts of speech, history, holidays, or whatever you can think of, to keep the kids learning and wanting to play again and again. Students get a theme a list a word or phrase for every letter of the alphabet.
