Just wanted to share our very easy end-of-year display case idea. Our seniors look forward to this all year.
We put out boxes of index cards and art supplies. Each senior decorates a card with his or her plans for next year. They go crazy competing to create the very best index cards--school colors, mascots, all sorts of images. We cluster them. (For instance, all the Penn State cards go together. All the military cards go together.) This year we photocopied their 9th grade pics from the yearbook and put them next to the cards. Put a couple of seniors in charge and the board goes up in no time!
Folks start gathering around the board as soon as the first cards go up.
