This seems to be the Summer of the,"Upcycle". I love the idea of taking something you already have and making it new. Usually,I apply this idea to the house. What if we applied the idea to educational materials? We could save money and find new ways of engaging our students.
For example, check out this vintage match game I found.
We play games with rules all the time...but sometimes you have to change things up a bit. Instead of playing on the floor,I added these small magnets.They came on a roll.
I put them on the side of my desk.
However, you could even put them on a cookie sheet or the fridge.
By the way, match games help students develop math and science skills.Thrifty learning!
