Each participants needs 1 piece of white paper and a writing utensil.
Instruct participants to write something specific on their piece of paper quickly and legibly.
- the most useful thing they learned in the lesson or class
- a challenging vocabulary or spelling word
- a tricky math problem
- a favorite quote, fact, saying, or verse
- proudest accomplishment during the day, week, semester, etc.
- something they still need help with
- a question they would like to ask the class or the teacher
- Vocabulary words, spelling words, or math problems can become pop quizzes or reviews; as items are read aloud participants can write them down and record their answers.
- After they have written on their paper, instruct them to crumple the paper into a ball. The balls of paper are now snowballs.
- Now for the snowball fight!
- Everyone gently tosses their snowball across the room, picking up a snowball and tossing it across the room three more times.
- After the snowball fight is over, each participant picks up one snowball.
- Each participant opens up the crumpled paper. One at a time they read aloud to the class what is written on the paper. 6. Then popcorn the next person to read aloud.
