Gatsby Differentiated Activity Menu
On this menu card, you will find nine activity options for students. There are many ways you can use this differentiated activity menu in your classroom. I have not included directions for students at the top of the sheet so you can use it however you wish.
Option #1: One Day Activity
Ask students to spend a class period working on activities from the menu. You can ask them to complete one activity from each column, one from each row, or a tic-tac-toe. You may wish to allow them to work in partners or groups on one or all of the activities.
Option #2: Multiple-Day Activities
Pass the menu out at the start of your unit. On various days throughout the unit, ask students to complete an activity (your choice or theirs). You can let them work in partners or groups on some days if you wish.
Option #3: Final Project
For this option, give students the menu toward the end of the unit. Let them know they will need to complete a certain amount of the options as their final project. Depending on how much time you have, they could complete 3, 4, 5, or 6 options. That way they still have quite a bit of choice in the project and can choose options that suit their talents and learning styles.
