Tired of boring your students with test prep or vocabulary lists? Help your students prepare for state standardized testing, as well as college-entrance exams, with this vocabulary in context question trail activity.
If you've never facilitated a "question trail," now is the time to try it out! You and your students will be hooked on its unique approach to learning.
A question trail is an activity comprised of different multiple choice “stations” or “spots.” These questions are posted throughout the classroom. At each station, students answer a multiple choice question. Each answer (a, b, c, or d) will send the students to a different station. If students answer each question correctly, they will travel to each station and complete a full circuit. If students answer a question incorrectly, they will eventually find themselves at a station they’ve already completed, which tells them that they need to backtrack. This gives you clear, immediate feedback. You will quickly see who is getting it ("on the trail") vs. who is not ("off the trail").
This includes the following:
