Product Description
What do you get when you combine role playing, art making, imagination, team collaboration, and the book, The Name Jar? A Quiz Show...based on Yangsook Choi's book, The Name Jar!

A timely book, The Name Jar addresses the value and importance of honoring cultural diversity. Telling the story of a young girl who just immigrated to the United States from Korea, the book brings to light some of the challenges immigrant students face when starting a new school in an unfamiliar country.

This FuN!, LOW-PREP, EDITABLE, interactive lesson & game is the perfect teaching supplement for The Name Jar. A hands-on and experiential lesson that encourages reflective thinking, it is designed for students to show off and build on their smarts in different ways. Plus, the questions and challenges are 100% customizable so if you like, you can edit them to better fit your specific needs.


The Name Jar Game Show is best used with a Promethean White Board or projector that that can be hooked up to your computer. Formatted as a power point presentation, The Name Jar Game Show will not only engage your students, but will also make it easier on you because it is: LOW-PREP & PRINT-FREE for all you busy teachers and school counselors! Lesson Plan included.

NOW WITH BONUS TASK CARDS & WORKSHEETS to provide you with flexibility!!!!! Given that the GAME SHOW takes 40-60 minutes to play, and sometimes we just don't have that much time....or that the GAME SHOW works best projected on a large screen, and sometimes the technology breaks down....or that there are days when we walk into the classroom and just know that a whole classroom game is not going to fly that day....and sometimes students need more quiet, reflective activities......I have included more than 6 additional formats to engage students with The Name Jar


HOW I USE THIS LESSON:
I love Fred Rogers’ quote that, "for children, play is serious learning." As the research says, creative play really is the language of childhood. No matter the topic covered, I have found that as long as the lesson involves a bit of art, role-playing, games, and some freedom of movement, students are engaged. In this lesson students get to act/ role play, draw, imagine, take risks, and problem solve as a team.

I hope that your students enjoy this growth mindset & introduction to the brain activities, having serious fun growing their minds and learning!
