Middle School Password Games

We’ve been mighty busy over the past week, so please forgive the lack of activity here. Most of that busy time was spent in tweaking this lesson. I used the same idea for both classes, but covered different materials for the different levels. The first graders are working on “I like drawing cartoons. I want to be a cartoonist” or “I like helping sick people. I want to be a doctor,” so on and so forth. The second graders are reviewing for the upcoming exams, so we’re going over passive structure again. For both lessons, essentially, they have to fill in the blanks to a handout, using only the words from the word bank. Every word has a numerical value as well. Once they fill in the blanks with the words, they have to plug in the number values into a formula. The results, when gathered all together from all of the different questions, form a “Password.” I lock my computer with this password as well; the first student to be able to crack the lock on my computer gets the prize, which is just a small set of lollies. For the second graders, since they finish this game sooner than the first graders, I have a backup gameboard, similar to the past tense gameboard for level 1, in which – for every spot they land on – they have to form a sentence in passive structure with the supplied words.
