Ideas for display:
1. Print, cut, laminate, and use magnets to display the cards. Students do not need to touch or remove the cards, they can simply look at their options, and choose an activity.
2. Hang the cards using string, twine, or ribbon and clothespins. Display as a banner.
3. Place the circle cards on a binder ring and hang on a hook. This saves you space, and students would be able to flip through the cards on the binder ring to see their options to choose from.
