Epic Prediction Trick – Magic in the Classroom

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

About This Video

This is a great way to introduce positive character traits to your classroom!

Have each of your students call out a positive character trait. As they’re named, write them down and place them in a bowl.

At the end one piece of paper is drawn out of the bowl. The trait that’s written on it matches a prediction that you made earlier!

This is another super-easy, totally self working trick that your classroom will love! In addition to character traits, you can use this to introduce any concept you want.
