Best Idea Ever: Challenge of Silence

Education World's Best Idea Ever feature highlights a favorite teacher-tested idea designed to help you teach a lesson, manage a classroom, communicate with parents, impress colleagues and administrators—and amaze them all with your energy and creativity! 

If your students tend to be noisy while lining up to leave the classroom for recess, lunch, or dismissal, challenge them to play the "silence game." Hold up an egg timer and tell students you bet they can't be quiet until time is up. After a few seconds, start asking individual questions. Students who answer you "lose" the bet!
