Let the Madness Begin!

With March Madness in full swing, my students are getting a small taste of the madness in our classroom. The games started during our Spring Break, so this bulletin board highlights the "Sweet Sixteen" teams that are left. The map pin-points what states the basketball teams/colleges are from. I placed the first fact up today, starting with the University of Kansas (yes, despite the recent nail-biter, but seriously...who else?!). I shared that James Naismith was the inventor of basketball, taught physical education at KU, and started basketball at KU. I will continue to add more facts about the remaining schools as the week progresses. This is one of my favorite times of the year!!
