These templates can be used to encourage participation from students. Participation sticks can be used to allow shy students to participate without anxiety, to make sure students are understanding a concept, or to just check student thinking. All you need to do is print off the pages back to back (works best with card stock), laminate if you want to, then attach a a popsicle stick to the bottom of the sign. The tools can easily be stored in baskets and handed out when when they are ready to be used. Students simply hold up the desired answer for questions and to change their answers, simply flip the sign over!
