I started using choice boards last year and LOVE them! I never gave my students the opportunity to be creative in my classroom. For years, it was notes, homework, and repeat until the test. These choice boards give students the ability to express themselves within their particular learning style. I have been so impressed with the results I get from my students.
This choice board focuses on Coordinate Graphs. Also included in this file are mini posters that describe each option on the choice board. I put these on a bulletin board that hangs all year, as we do a number of choice boards. You can also show them on a projector when introducing the choice board to your class. I like to distribute the choice boards at the beginning of the unit and give them a due date around the test.
When my students did their first choice board, I gave them a period in class to work on it. Following choice boards were completed entirely on their own time. I have also created and included a general rubric that you can use for any choice board item. To differentiate, I occasionally allow lower level students to complete two choices (I will cross out a row). The other option for differentiation is to reduce the number required for a particular choice. For example, have a student create two story problems rather than four. I also give students extra credit for any choices that they complete beyond the minimum.
I have created 13 choice boards for 6th grade common core math covering the following topics:
1. Ratios and Unit Rates
2. Ratio Relationships
3. Decimals, Factors, and Multiples
4. Multiplying and Dividing Fractions
5. Variables and Expressions
6. Integers and Rational Numbers
7. Coordinate Graphs
8. Properties and Operations
9. Equations and Inequalities
10. 2-D Geometry
11. 3-D Geometry
12. Measures of Center and Spread
13. Displaying Data

Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates.
Understand signs of numbers in ordered pairs as indicating locations in quadrants of the coordinate plane; recognize that when two ordered pairs differ only by signs, the locations of the points are related by reflections across one or both axes.
Find and position integers and other rational numbers on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram; find and position pairs of integers and other rational numbers on a coordinate plane.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.
Draw polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
