      We have done a really good centers activity related to literary terms. The students have a task at each station (make up five alliterations related to food, what prepositional phrases describe this picture, is it an allusion?... etc.) The students work with a partner and switch to each station based on a timed session. They fill up their "score card" and whichever team has the most correct entries at the end of the rotations wins a prize. We have done this every year with various topics. No more than 7 "stations" works best.
