Snowball fight!!

It snowed today in Room54!

I'm always looking for new fun ways to keep the kids engaged.  This snowball activity was used as a "cementing" activity after a lesson on gravity.  Its a goal of mine to make sure I do something after teaching a new concept to make the knowledge stick, hence "cementing." Students had to write one fact on a piece of paper and crumple it up into a snowball.  They got to throw their snowballs at each other and then pick up one snowball to use for the next round.  They had to open it up, read the fact, and add a different fact to the paper.  I'd say "Let gravity bring down the snowball you throw! GO!" and they'd throw it again.  We went several round and it was TONS of fun!  I plan to use this cementing activity more often for sure!
