Give your students choice when learning about the states of matter! This Tic-Tac-Toe menu is designed to assess student understanding at the end of, or throughout, a unit on the solar system. Each row or column contains at least one choice that requires students to compare the important properties of more than one state of matter.
Designed to support the full range of multiple intelligences, the nine choices provide all students with activities of interest (including one "create your own" choice). You may choose to require each student to complete three projects in a row. You may also consider allowing students to work with partners to complete one or more of the project choices.
I often give students one month or less to complete these projects, either in class or for homework. This amount of time gives every student a chance to complete at least one project, and most students complete several before the due date. Students of every learning style enjoy at least one of the choices, and their final projects provide authentic assessments that demonstrate student learning. These choice boards are also parent favorites and have led to many museum-style visits in which families and other classes visit our classroom to view the various projects on display. The variety of projects is fun for both participants and viewers.
