This digital choice board, or choice menu, for Google Drive™ contains engaging and paperless activities for students to use and practice area & perimeter. It makes a great way to differentiate for all learners! Students must have their own Google account in order to use this product. This will work on Chromebooks™, laptops and computers. It is NOT intended for iPads.
Be sure to check out my blog post about DIGITAL choice boards: 5 REASONS TO USE DIGITAL CHOICE BOARDS☺
The digital choice board contains 9 different digital activities that can be marked off as they are completed by dragging the translucent red "Xs" to lay on top of the rectangles that describe each activity. The text on the choice board is EDITABLE so you can change out or rearrange the activities to fit your needs. Students can use it like a tic-tac-toe board OR you could have them complete all of the activities throughout the week.
IMPORTANT! This product does NOT teach you HOW to use these tools. Students must be familiar with how to use Google Slides. The web tools that are linked in are very intuitive for most students.
These slides can be duplicated as many as you need throughout the year! They are set to print on 11x8.5 paper if you want a hard copy.
Activities that make up the choice menu (EDITABLE!):
★ Perimeter Geoboard: Students will use the geoboard website that is linked into this section of the choice menu to create 3 different shapes with the rubber bands that have perimeters of 4, 6 and 8 units (The measurements are editable!). Students can take a screenshot of their creation to add to one of the accountability slides.
★ Area Grids: Students will use the grid math website that is linked into this section of the choice board to create 4 different shapes with the area of: 10 sq. in., 12 sq. in., 16 sq. in., and 23 sq. in. (The measurements are editable!)
★ Sort It!: Using Slide 5, students will decide if the scenario fits under the area or perimeter categories by dragging and dropping them into the correct column. (The scenarios are all editable!)
★ Song/Rap: Students will use the Vocaroo website to record a song/rap they wrote about the definitions or area and perimeter.
★ Free Choice: Students will come up with their own idea to show their knowledge of area and perimeter: I have linked in several digital tools on the side of this slide that students can use for this choice.
★ Word Problems: Students will use Slide 6 to write 4 different word problems: 2 for perimeter and 2 for area.
★ Design It!: Students will use the Toytheater website to create a pixel art picture. They will then calculate the area and perimeter of their picture.
★ Perimeter Pictures: Students will use Slide 7 to find the perimeter of each framed picture.
★ Fill It!: Students will use Slide 8 to create closed figures by filling in the cells on each table using the fill bucket tool. They will then calculate the area and perimeter of each figure they designed.
All web tools are hyperlinked so students can quickly and easily access the tool they need.
★ EDITABLE grading rubric that you can either print and fill in or keep digital
★ 3 editable slides for students to add links/screenshots to their creations.
★ Early Finisher Slide with links to area & perimeter games that do not require a login
All slides can be duplicated as many times as you need.
