Create Jeopardy Games
One great extension activity that I've often done with kids to have them create their own Jeopardy game. The reason it's so great is that not only are they accessing the knowledge of what you've taught or read in a meaningful way, but they get to share their game with their peers, which is usually a great audience. In the past it was always the coolest thing to make a Power Point that did all of the transitions for you but that's not cool anymore since the Internet is what all the kids these days are clamoring for. Jeopardylabs is a great site that allows you to create, edit, and play a game online.
Today I came across a Google Sheet that does the same thing with a 5 and 6-category template that you can share with your students. They make a copy of the original and then start plugging in their questions and answers. It's the new, old school.
