Last of school ideas Last of school ideas


I tried to come up with some fun things for my students to do the last couple weeks of school.  They wanted each day to be different.  We ended up without time to do most of these ideas.  Maybe you can use some of them or add to them.  I've used all of them at one time or another.  The students were really enthusiastic about trading books, but only a few brought any.

One of my parents brought two containers of ice cream and three jars of toppings for the last day.  We really enjoyed that.  One year my parents made breakfast for us.
