Incentive systems

I'm trying to finish getting ready for the new school year, and I would like some input regarding incentive systems that have worked for other teachers. Last year, my first as a teacher, I had a lot of trouble with behavior management, although I found some things that worked towards the end.

One of them was giving team points each day, and the team with the most at the end of the week (sometimes two weeks) would get small bags of hot cheetos (something the students at my school will kill for). I also had a drawing system where individual students would get raffle tickets for a chance to pick from a bin of dollar store items.

Both of these worked, but I don't want to back myself into a corner regarding tangibles and food; that is, I don't want rewards like that to lose their special appeal nor to have to always be spending money.

I'll be teaching 6th grade science.
