I am currently in a leadership position in my school. The high school students have a gap between their lectures for a minimum of 45 minutes to an hour and half. I am in charge of gathering them into a special assembly room and finding something, like a daily activity to keep them busy, mixed with fun, and encourage them to join it rather than be wandering around in the school as they used to do before.

Does any one have ideas for activities that can be done daily to make our gathering full of educational fun or even just fun? Activities can be some for boys and some for girls as well as some others to be done by both of them.
I appreciate all your help and thanks.

    Perhaps they could play board games: monopoly, scrabble, chess, etc. These take up lots of time and keep people thinking. If you could leave the games set up so that everyone could return to an unfinished game the next day, so much the better.

    I am running for senior class president next year and I was wondering if anyone has done any really fun or cool senior activities? Anything will work, even if it's not just for seniors. Thanks!

    You could have a scavenger hunt. Use things that pertain to your senior year and hide them. Leave clues to where things can be found. See who can find them all the fastest. Or you could see who found the most within a set time limit.

    What sort of activities or things could I do to make my high school a fun school?

    At the highschool where I substitute teach, there is a club that is devoted to sponsoring fun activities. They organize special spirit days where kids dress up -- eg. Wear green to support the pro football team; they have watermelon helmets to purchase (paid for ahead of time) and then the free watermelon to eat, and then some sort of football related activities in the gym at noon.

    Or say, for Valentines, dress in red and white, buy a "crush" (the orange pop) for your secret crush, and it get's delivered to them, sale of giant heart shaped cookies, and a dance in the gym at noon hour; dress up for Hallowe'en, and a talent program in the gym for the afternoon. There are all kinds of things to do. It just takes someone to spearhead the organizing. Talk to one or two of your teachers who would be interested in helping you organize such a "leadership" or "spirit" club, get some like minded people to help you out, and go for it. Likely setting a goal of one activity day a month would be good. You might also work in fundraising for worthy causes - having a walk-a-thon for Heart & Stroke, selling "helping hands" for a charity, having a hot dog sale for playground equipment for the elementary school nearby, or whatever. Special food sales, dress-up days, fun contests, all make school interesting and fun to attend.

    At my school we had an Oreo licking contest and another day we had a speed dating game where you could meet new people.
