A group of students making up a table hockey game on the last day of school. On the last day of school I gave them some extended "choice time." (It's similar to "free time" but I won't let them call it that because if they don't make a choice, then I make one for them.) They made up the rules, figured out how to keep score, took turns playing and had fun playing. It was great! (If you teach a self-contained class, you know that some year's you need to work on cooperative skills all the way up to the last minute of the last day. This group "got it" and it was wonderful to see and hear.
