Hey list,
Does anyone have an art games based in elementary,

get about a dozen paper "pockets" from the library (the kind they put in the
backs of books) and glue them in rows onto a poster or mat board. it looks
cool to have the board and pockets decorated somehow - wrapping paper is
cheap and fast. number the pockets with bold numerals. make up a title -
mine says "Art Smart" but that might be copyrighted by now.

make up 12 questions about your lesson geared to whatever age you're working
with. write each question on a 3x5 card and the answer on the back. put one
card in each pocket. the kids take turns; pick a number, read the question,
tell the answer correctly and win a prize. (incorrect answers get to choose
another kid to answer the question. for prizes: little ones love those
die-cut things which you can get a PTA mom to do for you. all kids love
pages copied from the anti-coloring books or the masterworks coloring books,
mazes, etc. i always try to have a few choices and relate the prize to the
quiz subject matter. you can make up sets of question cards for lessons
through all grade levels and use the same board.
