Love this idea! Math challenge of the week for grade math. A new challenge is posted every Monday and students have until the end of the day Thursday to try it. This is for middle school math, but the idea is applicable to any content area or grade level!
love this for the first week of school. Have kids interview each other, create a silhouette, and write a brief bio of their partner. Possibly have 2 writing samples one from beginning of year and one from the end?
