    I tried doing a search, but it didn't really come up with much. My students are taking the statewide test this week (Tuesday-Thursday) and I want to come up with some activities to take up about 2 hours.

    ***I did take one idea from someone, bake something instant. Then, I'm going to have them write a "how to" piece afterwards.

    I wouldn't mind some center activity ideas that would have them create something.

    Does anyone have any ideas? What do you do after the big, statewide test?

    I have found that acceleration for the next grade level is a quality activity for after testing and end of the school year activities. I usually talk to a teacher in the 6th grade about some of the academic expectations which will be required of upcoming 5th graders. Some of the projects and activities we work on at the end of the year are great transition pieces for the upcoming school year. Due to the fact students have matured and are familiar with expectations, the activities turn out to be meaningful and most importantly FUN!

    When I taught 5th grade when we took state tests we always spent the rest of the day (after the test) playing review games and doing review for the next days test.
