Thanks for your comment. I agree it can be tricky trying to get everything in to meet the standards, and I definitely agree that learning needs to be fun (and memorable!) EVERY day. The competition is initially what motivates the students and gets them excited, but the end result is everyone loves their own creation and there are accolades all around. The "winners" always get huge rounds of applause from the kids because they are the ones who chose them! If you give this a try in your class, let me know how it goes!
