    We had a blast
    By Chris G

    Clip to ScrapBook
    with The Westing Game in my fifth grade class...about half of them "got it", but the other half had to be spoon fed. Each student became an heir, and were paired up the same as the book. This was done randomly, and really worked. Friday everyone dressed up as their character and we had a party. I still have middle schoolers come back and ask if I'm still doing the Westing Game with my class, and many of those are boys. I wouldn't hesitate doing it with 8th graders.

    You'll come up with all sorts of ideas as you read and reread the story....

    Have fun!
