Popcorn or Ice Cream Party

Have your students been exceptionally well-behaved for an extended period of time? Did everyone in class get a B or better on your last test? Spend an afternoon throwing a popcorn or ice cream party, complete with a movie or games! It will feel like a real treat to students. Tie your activities into recent lessons, as well. If you just finished reading Romeo & Juliet, show the movie to your class. Just completed a tough unit on DNA? The movies Gattaca and Jurassic Park are good choices for high school students (both rated PG-13).

To save money on the treats, ask your students to bring in microwave popcorn from home, if they have it, or buy a large bag of kernels and pop it the old-fashioned way. It's much less expensive.
