Trashketball FREEBIE

So i finally found my Proofreading activity that i mentioned last week when i purchased the basketball hoop thing.  You don't need a basketball hoop to make it fun!  Seriously, all it took was giving the kids a chance to throw garbage into the can as if it were a basketball to make them try their best and have fun with it!  i just showed the PDF as a slideshow, told the kids to make corrections if necessary, and if the team got it correct - a representative got to shoot.  to add a "twist" i put down some masking tape and labeled at different distances: 0.5 points, 1.0 points, 2.5 points, etc (we were also working on decimals at that time) and they could choose where to shoot from. there is no answer key, but hopefully you upper elementary teachers will find the errors and guide your students as needed ;-)
leave us a little note hello if you download (just click on the word FUN below) and tell us how YOU make the "boring" things FUN!!!!!!!!
