Kick Me!! Activity Rule #1 Nobody gets kicked during this activity!!!
So what is it??? Named for the kick me sign prank, there is NO kicking involved. Students find answers to blanks on a worksheet by looking at the words that the teacher has put on students backs using labels. This encourages movement in the lesson thus increasing focus, engagement, and retention of information.
The Rules : #2 When you have them all, sit on your desk so that others can still see your label. #1 Find the answers to your worksheet on the backs of your classmates. #3 There is no kicking in kick me.
