Each lesson and activity is assigned a point value. When you complete the activity, track your progress on the classroom chart. Your classroom chart has four levels, at increments of 25 points each. As each new level is achieved, your class will be rewarded with a prize.
Below are the activities you can choose from to reach your 100 point goal. Some are quick, some take a little longer. There’s something for everyone! Resources are organized by the number of points they’re worth.
