I’m starting my 1-week winter camp at my main school today. As the topic title states, I’m focusing on a few popular jobs. I’ve divided them up as follows:
Monday – Writer (Activity: MadLibs)
Tuesday – Anything Music-related (Activity: Make a rain stick)
Wednesday – Cook (Activity: Make (REAL) Garlic Bread & Fried Ice Cream)
Thursday – Anything related to YouTube (Activity: Brainstorm and Set-up their YouTube Pages–I don’t think we’ll have time to give each an intro video to their respective pages.)
Friday – Detective (Activity: Escape Room–basically, a review day for the previous 4 days)
I’ve included the list of items we bought for the camp, the worksheets for the 2 levels (3rd – 5th grades were combined, since there were so few 5th graders. The 5th graders that enrolled were of the lower level anyway, so that worked out fine), and a review guide for Day 2 – 4.
As always, feel free to use and alter as you see fit for your school(s).

Materials for the Monday (“Writer”) Portion:
– “What is this word?” game to get them into thinking in vocab categories (i.e. color, person, shape, action, food, size, animal, etc.)
– “MadLibs Intro.” I doubt these kids know MadLibs, so this was my humble attempt in explaining it to them.
– “Dice MadLibs” which is the same from the worksheets. I had them use die, especially the 3rd graders.
I didn’t have enough time, but I would’ve loved to do some online MadLibs with them. I was thinking of these two pages:

Materials for the Tuesday (“Music”) Portion:
I have a “Musical Job” intro ppt, but the file has some issues with being uploaded. Anyway, just know it exists.
– “Guess the Musical Job!” students guess what the job is as they get to see more and more of the picture. Each “musician” picture is linked to their respective YouTube videos.
– “Guess the Musical Job” matching exercise for the lower level kids
– “Write the Musical Job” write in activity for the higher level kids, to make sure they stay awake and alert. 😛
I want the kids to make rain sticks (or shakers) out of paper towel rolls (or 2 toilet paper rolls taped together). I’ll use the rain stick instructions from this site as a guide–although I’ll be changing a few things–http://playsinglaugh.com/archives/1066 (scroll down to the last photo on the page).

Materials for the Wednesday (“Cook”) Portion:
– “Cooking!” intro. to different cooking terms
– “Cooking Quiz” multiple choice review of the intro.
– “Cooking Quiz_3-5” the worksheet portion for this day for the lower levels.
– “Cooking Quiz_6” same as above, only it’s not multiple choice, but fill in the blank.
– “How to Make Garlic Bread” I don’t know who made it or where I originally got it (other than from Waygook.org), but someone else made it and I thank that person very much. We’ll see how original/not-sweet garlic bread will go down with the kids.
So we’ll make garlic bread in a small oven we have at school. We’ll also make “Fried Ice cream” on the electric portable burners we’ve got. I’ll use this “Fried Ice Cream” recipe: https://www.delish.com/cooking/recipe-ideas/a22075262/fried-ice-cream-recipe/

Materials for the Thursday (“YouTuber”) Portion:
This day was by far the one that needed the most creativity, help, and time. That doesn’t mean it’s perfect (far from it, I know), but for the areas where I lack, I am proud of what I was able to make.
– “YouTuber Terms!” intro ppt. I can almost expect my kids to need to explain these things to me, I feel old. 😛
– “YouTuber Ideas” to get them into thinking of a few different kinds of niches within the world of YouTube.
– “YouTuber Tips” to get them thinking into what they should keep in mind when starting a YouTube channel, if desired.
– “YouTube Channel Plan” short questionnaire to get them into applying the ideas from “YouTuber Tips” onto their own YouTube page.
– “YouTube Channel Page” they can (roughly & manually) create their own YouTube page on paper.
– “Subscribe and Like” not sure if we’ll have time, but will want to get the students to introduce their “YouTube pages.” Then the class would go around passing out “subscribe” to the “YouTubers” they want to “subscribe” to, and “Like” icons to the “YouTubers” they “like.” You can figure out the details that would work better for your class(es).

Materials for Friday (“Detective”) Portion:
I’ve attached my riddles. The first 2 riddles include the code for opening those coded pencil cases. The third one has a code word the team needs to tell me so I can give them the key to their box (and final prize). The last file is the message I put inside each box with a key to “escape the room.” Yeah, so not really an escape room per say, but good enough in my school’s case. 😛
