A choose your answer activity is a great low-prep resource for teachers to use in their classrooms. It is similar to a choose your own adventure book. Simply print off the activity papers, hang them up around your room, and copy the student answer sheets. (There are two versions of the student answer sheets so that you can choose the one that works best in your classroom.)
To start off, students take their answer sheet and evenly spread out around the room at the different papers. (To spread them out so there is not a traffic jam anywhere, you can assign each student to a paper or just encourage your students to go to a paper that has three or fewer students at it.)
Students solve the problem on their answer sheet and look for their answer in the choices at the bottom of the paper. Once they find it, they go to the paper it tells them to go to. If students loop back prematurely (before they have visited every paper), they know they have messed up on one. Once students finish, I ask them to come tell me their order. The answer key has the answers to every problem as well as a circular key to easily check a student’s order no matter which problem a student started on.
To help students out, sometimes I will put a sticky note behind the papers, telling them which letter they should have come from.
Use this at the end of a lesson or as a review activity. Students love it because they get to move around the room. I also let them work with other students and love the math conversations I hear.
There are 16 different problems in this resource, two different options of student answer sheets, and the answer key.
