I finished the 8th Grade STAR Program with a round of STAR Trivia.
I break the kids into groups, and I put some categories related to different topics I have taught up on the board. Each group picks a question off the board, and if they get it right, everyone gets a candy. I make the first round easy, but after that things get more difficult. If they are feeling lucky, they can pick one of the “Super Hard” questions and try for two candies each (not too many kids got those ones right).
I have taught the majority of these kids since the 4th Grade and it is a little bittersweet to see them move on to high school. This particular group had its share of characters, and I hope they all make the most of their opportunities as they get older.
