Description

In this ReadWriteThink lesson, students are introduced to the Flip-a-Chip activity and have an opportunity to build their own packets. Each packet contains word parts that are printed on poker chips. Students write paragraphs leaving blanks for the four words that can be flipped from their chips (e.g., impose, impress, suppose, and suppress). Students then exchange their packets to see if the context clues in the paragraphs are strong enough to enable other classmates to fill in the words correctly.
