The Creative Brain by Ned Herrmann. In this low stress activity, students will think about a shape with which they identify and write down a brief explanation of why they picked the figure. They will share their written answers with the other 4 members in the group. (When we played at the workshop, everyone in my group (except for me) was a triangle!)
Silly Sports & Goofy Games. Over the last month, I bought 3 no props - fun games type books to get ideas for this visit. Kagan's book was by far the best!
Campus Tour using an All-Write-RoundRobin. Students will taking turns identifying places on campus that they would like to see. As each student shares their response, all members of the team write each location on their own paper. After time is called students are selected at random to share a location that their team listed. Other teams add the response (if they don't already have it) to their Campus Tour Sheet. I hope that this creates a more interesting tour for each student my appealing to personal interests. If they want to see the art room or the field house, I want them to see it - after all, 6th Grade Day is all about our visitors! What am I missing? I know that I still need to find or make props for the photo booth, but is there anything else? Please share links and ideas!
