daily doodle journal or activity- maybe an interesting way to get students involved and focussed. Doodle of a chapter? Doodle of a thought or key concept. Doodle of something you learned? Doodle your way through the day.
I love this idea. An envelope guest book. You just take a store-bought scrapbook/album and glue envelopes into it. Lay out colored pieces of paper for guests to jot notes down on, and then they can place them in the envelopes.
