Activities for the End of the Year

 The "Lure" of Fish - The Benefits of Keeping an Aquarium in Your Classroom
When I taught third grade in an inner city school, I knew the children needed something to love, but being a city girl, my love of animals was deficient. That is when my husband helped me to set up an aquarium. I purchased a water heater, a bubblier, chemicals, plants, fish food, and of course the fish! Little did I know what effect this would have on my students.
 Review Activities

Fascinating information about Memorial Day and Veterans Day is presented in an easy to read, organized format. Students will summarize this info in unique Venns and timeline fill-ins.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “End of Year Writing Activity - Letter to Self”

by Mining the Middle Years
3rd - 9th Grade

This year end activity asks students to complete a handout reflecting upon their past year and setting goals for next year. It is intended that this form will be mailed back to the students before the start of the next school year. The format is loosely based on the ‘two stars and a wish’ concept.
In this digital age, students love to get snail mail the old fashioned way!
This is a great end of the year activity.
