Are you looking for a free, fun holiday activity for your students that meets the rigorous standards you commit to in your classroom? Then look no further, our Stay AFLOAT (Activate Freethinking & a Love of learning by Offering Alternative Tasks)” resource for Memorial Day is the perfect RAFT activity to use with students to honor those who gave their lives for our country. It is a great way to allow you to recognize the holiday or season while maintaining an academic focus and promoting student agency.

RAFT activities are highly engaging, and they are the perfect way to move students beyond basic multiple choice questions. With RAFTs, students are taken out of their familiar worldview and forced to think from a new, unique perspective.  RAFTs encourage students to infuse their work with voice and creativity.  They are an easy way to implement higher order thinking skills that support the 4Cs (Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, & Critical Thinking).

A RAFT provides students with predefined parameters that students must take into account prior to responding. RAFT stands for Role, Audience, Format, and Topic. RAFT activities help students consider the angle they will be responding from (role), who they are writing to (audience), how they will respond (format), and the direction they should take their response (topic).
