Middle school students divide into teams to diagram a sentence. After putting one line and one word on the board, they hand off the marker to someone else on their team. The first team to finish with a correctly diagrammed sentence wins. We write their time on the board and compare it to the teams of the other middle school grades. In this race, the 7th and 8th grades tied, diagramming their sentences in 1:37 (one minute and 37 seconds). The winners get Smarties candies!
