As the end of the year approaches, it can be more and more challenging to keep your students' attention. Brain Breaks are important, but there are plenty of things you can do within a lesson to keep kids from day dreaming...or worse yet, nodding off.

This game is so simple to set up/prepare for... and it's so exciting for the kids that it's their favorite game to play!

I initially found this game years ago on Little Giraffes , but I've expanding on it a bit to incorporate some math skills! First things first, download this template.
One of my favorite ways to review a skill is to use the 4 Corners strategy.
