The Nonfiction Choice Board is a flexible instructional tool. How does it work? Simply have your students read an informational text and select an activity. You can ask them to read one book and do one task; read three books and complete activities in a row, column, or diagonal (tic-tac-toe); or read nine books and complete the entire board.
• Cootie Catcher Vocabulary
• Crafty Content Diagram
• Paper Chain Summary
• Paper Bag Artifacts
• Free Choice
• Paper Plate Compare/Contrast
• Main Idea Sticky Note
• Question Cube
I have purposely left the directions rather open-ended to force kids to think about what they might do. This brings some creative and critical thinking into the picture. Two students may come up with widely diverse projects for the same square!
