Get students thinking (and talking) with this fun “Top 10 Lists” activity shared by Tracee Orman of TeachersPayTeachers. The activity involves students creating a David-Letterman style Top 10 list to help reinforce a lesson or to increase motivation and engagement around another school issue or event.
Students can either read their list from a card or make a poster of their list. The lists can be posted online or on a bulletin board for other students to see. Kids could even create the list in a PowerPoint presentation and present it as a mini-speech to the class.
Try continuing the theme throughout the year (maybe once a quarter so kids do not tire of the activity) for almost any activity or event. Examples include:
