"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 the Winter season with the exception of the pickle...the troublemaker! How do pickles relate to Winter? 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 a Winter 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: Winter Pick-A-Project. Do NOT purchase them both- this set includes BOTH enabling you to differentiate!

Included in this unit:
*Step-by-step instructions with photo examples and suggestions for extensions
*44 color Winter themed playing cards (print 2 sets per team)
*Writing choice board with 9 Winter activities and 3 versions for implementation
*9 Winter activity descriptions for file folders with template(s)/instructions for each activity
*One convenient rubric for all projects
*Student word list recording sheet
*Complete Winter Pick a Project set with no reference to the card game as another option

This is the perfect unit for homework or literacy centers when we are all feeling the excitement of the coming Winter season....celebrate while still keeping academically focused!
