Class Auction Pack

I showed my Year 8 class what was in the class auction pack after they had just sat a very challenging timed maths test. There were squeals (yes LOUD squeals!) of delight from some of the girls as I brought out the first item – the soft toy. Then as each item came out, the noise of delight and excitement got louder. When the final item (the burglar alarm) was shown to the students, there was such a thunder of noise, I think it could have set off our own alarm system! Immediately, students were purchasing houses and making deals with each other to transfer money to come up with a deposit. The excitement was palpable! Thank goodness the bell for next period rang and I now have some peace….. until the auction!
