Engaging Review Activities








January Lesson – Engaging Review Activity:
January is a great time to rejuvenate and use our creative energies to reflect upon our instructional delivery and
coursework and how actively we engage our students in the learning process. This assignment is meant to be
enlightening and productive! Take a look at an area of your curriculum and plan a new engaging review activity
that will be useful for your students this semester. The purpose is NOT to reuse an old activity but to take the time
now to prepare a new review activity to use later in the semester. It could entail concepts to master around a
chapter or unit review or case studies for discussion and role play. Please be prepared to share your NEW review
lesson/activity at our next NFE gathering and what you liked about your new method of review. Do not use an old
activity.
Content Element: Below is a collection of various sites containing review activities/games for you to explore. You
may feel free to use any one of these ideas for an activity or use one that you’ve heard about and have been
wanting to create, but haven’t yet taken the time to experiment with to date.
Dig Deeper: Feel free to research on your own to find just the right review activity to suit your needs best if this
collection doesn’t suit your needs. Then create a new review activity to infuse into your curriculum for review of
content.
Discussion: Be prepared to share your activity and how it will actively engage the learners in a thorough review of
the concepts you want them to master centered around your curriculum.
