BACK TO SCHOOL ACTIVITIES: CLASSROOM CHALLENGE ACTIVITIES & BULLETIN BOARD
The Classroom Challenge helps teachers establish a positive classroom community with 20 activities that encourage kindness, collaboration, team-work, expression, and the sharing of ideas and opinions.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Teachers set up the "Classroom Challenge" bulletin board display that includes 20 hidden activity prompts. Once a challenge is revealed, the teacher finds the corresponding activity in the folder, passes it out to the class, and they are ready to go! The activities are meant to take between 5-10 minutes each (depending on the class).
Worried about printing in color? No problem. Everything included comes with black and white version!
WHEN DO I USE IT?
These challenges can be used daily, weekly, or randomly! Below are a few suggestions for how you could use it in your class:
1. As a daily challenge during back-to-school or semester change to build classroom community and to help your students connect with each other.
2. As a bell-ringer to hook your students at the start of class or an end of class activity. Consider doing one each Friday for 20 weeks!
3. As an activity to do when class finishes 5-10 minutes early and you need something to keep students engaged!
