Somehow I have never played one of these games before so I am really excited to try this one out with my new class during the first week of school.
Who wouldn’t want to squish one of these!
I am always down for any reason to use food in the classroom and this is a perfect fun first week of school activity.
This chart is a great desk reference and would be perfect laminated for writing workshop folders.

This would be a great PE activity, especially at the beginning of the school year.
I love this idea so much! You could easily adapt it to any different location around your school.
Yes to anything requiring a magnifying glass! My students love any reason to get them out.
