Transcript of Trashketball - Figurative Language

1. Stay in your seat with your team. Try your best. Work together.

2. The question will be asked by the teacher. Teams will write down their answer to the question, then raise their hand in the air when they are done writing. Teacher will collect answers, but the first quiet group will get to share their answers for Student of the Day points.

3. If that team's answer is correct, they will get one point.
