Hi Peggy -- with my K-5's, after they've cleaned up and sat down and I'm
looking to see who's ready to line up, I have people at each table group
answer a question from the lesson as their "ticket" to lining up -- ex:
what color is opposite blue on the color wheel, or what might you have
found in King Tut's tomb, takes just a minute more. I agree that closure
is difficult to do properly!
