Students LOVE doing CHOICE BOARD PRODUCTS! They can create them on basic copy paper or complete them ONLINE and SHARE them to you. They involve HIGH ORDER THINKING SKILLS like Synthesis and Analysis of new Science Content, in this case, Layers of Earth & Plate Tectonics-- and how those plates move to cause certain geologic events. It's a great way to practice and learn new VOCABULARY Terms in an authentic and meaningful way.
This is a fantastic way to DIFFERENTIATE-- different level kids can be assigned different products, number of products, or more or less items (like Vocab Terms) IN A PRODUCT!!
There will NEVER be another minute with nothing to do-- if you always have a Choice Board for the UNIT in their Science Journals/Interactive Notebooks!!
I am also including FIVE(5) FREE EXTRAS!!! Check out my popular Science Grading RUBRIC, Vocab CUBE Pattern, Bar Graph Formatted Page with DRY MIX, and SI UNITS Vocab MatchUP CARDS- both large & small!! I hope some of my teacher hints (20 years in formation) and suggestions on page 2 are helpful and make your year paperless and easy to manage!! I am adding new products all the time, so please check back or follow me to keep up with fun, but rigorous Science stuff for your classroom! I hope to help you ROCK THE SCIENCE!!
Sincerely, Jana, Science Rocks with Smalley!
