Hello fellow gamers,
I always have a few "fast finishers" in my 5th grade classroom. I don't want to hand them a lame worksheet. I need games suggestions that take about 20 minutes or less...ones that will work their little brains, but they will have fun at the same time. If anyone wants to donate ones that their kiddos have grown out of, I'd appreciate it. chlammers@wsd.net

Thanks!
Christie

These are short games that are relatively quiet:
Love Letter
Pairs
Brave Rats
Red 7

These are short games that can get noisy:
Spot It/Dobble
One Night Ultimate Werewolf
Rolling America
Roll For It

These are games that require just pencil and paper, but might take longer:
Dvorak/100 Blank White Cards
Sprout

Hope that helps

Coup is cheap, short, and will definitely get some 5th graders thinking. It is very similar to Love Letter but the theme of Coup is probably much more appealing to 5th graders. It is a bluffing game and if don't want that then I would go with Loot.

I have had success with Hey, That's My Fish!, Sushi Go!, and Quoridor with my grade 5s.
