This activity in the classroom
I was amazed how my students fought over these sentences the first time I made them.
I teach sixth grade and had made a set as a practice activity for a specific group of students.
Quickly, I found that all of my students wanted a turn.
Since then, I have worked to create more challenging sentences that also teach a social studies or science topic.
Sometimes, I make the sentences so tough that it takes me a moment to figure out how the words fit together.
When creating your printed set, I suggest printing on colorful card stock. I print each page on a different color. This makes for easier sorting of the cards.
