Describe the Resource:
GREAT INTRO GAME/STARTER ACTIVITY
MISSION POST IT NOTES
The teacher writes a key word/phrase relating to the topic to be taught that day on a post it note. Try and make as many post it notes as you can. These are then hidden across the classroom before the lesson. Students are required to search and find as many post it notes as they can!
The one with the most WINS! But there’s more to it! At the end of the lesson, tell students to sit in a circle and they need to explain or define every post it note that they have collected. Or how that word relates to the topic at hand.
Want to make it more challenging??
Pop in a few super hard key terms on a red post it and hide these in the classroom too amidst the normal ones.
Consolidate learning in the lesson
Keep students attentive and on their toes to ensure they look out for the key terms on their post it note within the lesson
Engage students right at the start.
Challenge the higher ability students by popping in a few red post it notes across the classroom.
If a student can’t define/explain their post it note at the end, they lose that one and it gets passed to the next person.
The one with the most at the end WINS!
