You're full of turkey and stuffing, the shopping for Christmas is all done, and now it's time to get back to reality with 3 more weeks of classes on the schedule.Keeping the attention of our students can be such a challenge during this time of year, but there are strategies you can use to help your students stay on track and focused to finish out the semester!
Here are just a few ideas:
- Play games - Have your student create board games to review semester content, and they play those games in class the days before the semester final exam. Or, set up your classroom like a human game board for a review quiz that keeps them on their feet!
- Take them on vacation - Organize scavenger hunts about different places to help them learn as they hunt for clues. Or travel through topics and locations as you take a Walking Tour through History!
- Make it interactive - Use lessons that will keep them up and active like an Archeology Dig or a Sunken Ship Exploration. And don't forget about role playing fun to add creativity and performance to your lessons!
