Citation Race

Take a citation for an item, cut it into pieces. Maybe even include extra/unnecessary pieces. Then, divide the class into teams, have them race to put the citations in the correct order.  You could also give them the pieces for 2 or 3 citations and make them figure out which pieces are for which citations.
