Magic Chalk


Found in: chalkboards; motivating students

I discovered that if you get the BIG porous sidewalk chalk and soak it in water, you can write on a chalkboard and, at first, it's barely visible, but if you blow on it or wave your hand over it and the writing 'magically' appears. I tell my classes that it's 'magic chalk' and they're totally engaged. It's something that I use only periodically for emphasis on a particular point on which I want them to focus. It's fun and adds a little humor to the class. Hard, non-porous chalk doesn't work, but it does write without the proverbial 'squeeeeeeeeek'. Yet another bonus.
