Turn of the Century
Need a student led activity to reinforce your Turn of the Century unit? This choice board allows your students to independently work through 13 standards based activities. Choice board activities allow students to show mastery in this standard by completing hands on dioramas, create quizzes, watch episodes on inventors, and complete a gallery walk. The choice board sheet is editable so you could swap out or take off any of the activities. I have assigned point values to each activity so that the choice board can be easily graded.
