Have an odd job for a student to do? Want a fair way to decide on team captains? Use the pick a stick can.
Create a stick for each student in your classroom and place the sticks into a can named “helpers.” When you need to pick a student for something pick from among the sticks in the can. Transfer the choosen stick to a seperate can to house them until each child has had their turn. Then transfer each students stick back into the helper can.
