"In a Pickle" is a fabulously fun, addictive, and fast-paced game to encourage higher-level thinking and discussion. In this card game, students are challenged to lay their cards based on one word...IN. All cards that are played must fit IN the card they are played above or below. Simple concept but great discussion emerges! As students build larger card sets, they are able to collect these winning sets and build their own word banks for a future writing challenge! All of the cards in this version are nouns related to St. Patrick's Day with the exception of the pickle...the troublemaker! How do pickles relate to St. Patrick's Day? That's your students' problem to figure out!

Once students collect several winning sets of cards and build their word banks, they will select one set and use the writing choice menu to complete an activity or activities using their words. Each activity has a descriptive cover perfect for attaching to file folders and using in independent literacy centers and template(s).

***This set also includes the non-card game related choice menus and rubric for your convenience as seen here: **St. Patrick's Day Pick A Project. Do NOT purchase them both- this set includes BOTH enabling you to differentiate!
