Today's post is Fun Friday...what fun things do you do in the classroom?
I have two favorite fun activities I do during our units. The first comes with our Cry, The Beloved Country unit. A character in the book is given an unfair trial, and so as a class, we give him a real trial! We pick a defense team, a prosecution team, and witnesses. I act as the judge/jury.
Here is the direction sheet that I give them :)
The kids get REALLY into the trial. They have fun and learn at the same time...WIN!
The other fun activity I do is the Renaissance Faire. It is probably one of my favorite activities that we do, especially since I participated in them as a student too :)
It is sooooo much fun! The kids make booths, and games, and food. There's archery, sword-fighting, cornhole, and much more. Here's a few pics to check out:
So many more pictures, but students' faces were in them and it's hard to cover those up without making them look so silly :/
Well I hope you enjoyed some of the fun things I do in the classroom...please feel free to comment with some of the fun things you do in your classroom!!
