Choose Your Corner is a formative assessment strategy that helps students distinguish attributes of certain categories, objects, topics, terms, etc. In this choose your corner, students are given a set of attributes that describe the Earth, Moon and Sun. They must distinguish between those attributes and determine which corner of the room they belong. This activity can be used as a pre-assessment to your Earth, Moon, and Sun lesson or as a post-assessment to see how well students know the different characteristics of the three. I think it also serves as an excellent review/study tool for student to practice differentiating the Earth, Moon and Sun. I use “Choose You Corner” activities as fillers when there are a few extra minutes in class and as openers to review the content of the previous day or week. They are quick, effective, and easy to make.
