Check out the one day review unit my second grade class used recently! We pretended to be secret agents with various tasks throughout the day. I started by using white string and black lights to decorate the classroom like lasers. Next, we used a finger scanner app (free download) to enter the classroom.
Kids had four tasks to complete by the end of the day.
Task 1: Math
Review of additions/subtraction of 2 and 3 digit numbers, word form/number form matching, and a word problem.
Task 2: Synonyms and Antonyms
43 synonym and antonym cards, with recording sheets to write down the matches.
Task 3: Close Read/Summary
Close read about CIA agents. Summary writing template.
Task 4: Oregon Trail Review/Letter Writing
Pack your wagon! An Oregon Trail review. Also, write a letter to your diary from the perspective of a traveler on the Oregon Trail. The letter writing template on old paper can be used for any letter writing task.
Included: images to decorate folders for the tasks, secret agent badges
