World Records Powerpoint
« on: April 08, 2011, 09:27:08 am »
I did this as an activity class with my middle schoolers a while back. Here is the basic Powerpoint.

The kids seemed to enjoy it and found it interesting. I made them create their own questions as an activity e.g. "What record did you find interesting?" and 'What records did you find strange" etc.... and encouraged them to try and talk about them. I finished off by playing a standard bomb game with them for the last 7-8 minutes where they had to remember the name of the record and whatever other information they could re-count.

Of course you can tailor your activities to the level of your students. This class was a hit with my kids though. I hope it may help somebody out there!
