When I posted my download for “Go Together Giraffes,” I received a request for a pack set for older students. You asked, I answered! I used basic graphics to target older students (upper elementary into middle school). The graphics KPM Doodles.
In this pack you will find similar activities as my giraffe pack but with words that older students will understand and be motivated by. I used some words related to classroom curriculum which will be helpful with the push for common core.
Go Together Cards: these can be used for drilling or use as a game (memory, go fish, or others). All you have to do is print, glue to card stock or index cards and laminate.
What does not belong? All you have to do is print and laminate. You can choose to add to card stock to make thicker. Students must read or hear list, determine which does not belong and express why. Can they use the carrier phrase: “____ does not belong because it is not a ____”? You can use these to drill or with any motivating game/activity.
Name things that go together cards: just print and laminate! You can use these with any game/activity. I like to use my mini dry erase boards and let students have a competition. Who can name the most? Who can come up with the most creative answers? Students must name as many items that go with the category or item provided.
Review worksheet: since this activity is for older students, as a review I think it is important for them to express what they know. You can have them verbally express or write on the worksheet. You can give this for homework or use in a follow-up lesson. This can be great to collect data before and after activity to assess progress.
