LOVE THIS idea from Miss Powell at 
Wonder how to challenge those kiddos- here's the answer straight from Miss Powell's site ...


Do you want to be part of the fun? Miss Powell's NFL Club is looking for new recruits! The NFL is a club for students who are never finished learning (NFL). NFL members go above and beyond the normal classroom expectations and challenge themselves to do more than what they "have" to do.
Here's how to get started:
  1. Choose any question from the five categories on the challenge list: Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science or Humanities.

  2. Research your topic using reference books or the internet.

  3. STUDY, STUDY, STUDY so you become an expert on your subject.

  4. When you are ready, let me know and I will ask you some questions about your topic.
When you pass the challenge you earn a point in the NFL club! There are different rankings you can earn as you learn.
  • 1-5 points: rookie
  • 6-10 points: starting line-up
  • 11-15 points: pro
  • 16- 25 points: All Star
  • more than 25 points: NFL Hall of Fame
The "Hall of Fame" will be posted in our classroom and on the awards page of this web site as soon as someone earns enough points. Once you're in the Hall of Fame, you're in for life since you are a lifetime learner! You can track your progress on your own NFL tracking sheet.
It's your decision if you would like to be part of the NFL Club. You can be a player and earn points or be a cheerleader and support your friends. The NFL is for students who are never finished learning. It's your call. Are you up for the challenge?

This is just an AWESOME idea! Thanks to Miss Powell for sharing EXCELLENT ideas on her site.  Check out her site at
   I can't wait to implement this in my classroom!
