A Summary Ball is merely a
or other harmless ball that can be tossed about the classroom with relative safety. After the teacher has presented a sufficient amount of information, or after students have read a chapter in their text, this activity can be used as a review. Students stand around the classroom and the teacher tosses the ball to the first student, who must catch the ball and in 5 seconds state any idea, fact or concept from the lessons. He/she then tosses the ball to another student who has not yet spoken. The second student must add something that has not been mentioned. If a student can't add anything from the lesson, he/she still tosses the ball, but must sit down. Play continues until only one student is left standing.
