Pencil Trivia Bulletin Board

Pencil Trivia

Our school has bulletin boards up and down the hallways. Teachers take monthly turns adding student work to them. Often the bulletin boards reflect some major skill that has just been taught. Other times the bulletin boards are just fun. I thought for March 30, the day in history when the attached eraser to the pencil was patented, I would create a fun bulletin board.

Black History Month Scoot Activity

Free Black History Month Task Cards

Black History Scoot Activity

Playing Scoot turns using a set of task cards into a game. You play by placing one task card on each student’s desk. For easier recording, place the cards in numerical order. Give each student one copy of a sheet to record answers.

Directions

Each student will read the question on the activity card on his/her desk and will record the answer. After a length of time (approximately 1 minute),a signal is given for the students to scoot to the next desk. The signal may simply be the teacher saying “move” or a noise such as a bell. The procedure repeats at each desk. The activity continues until all students end up at the desks where they began the activity. Continue Reading
