Product Description

Science Choice Boards | Choice and Differentiation | 3rd - 8th Grades | For Whole Year | 30 Different Science Topics | Science Projects and Activities | Allows for Creativity
Students love to be able to make choices in their learning.  So, why not let them!  Science Choice Boards are a great tool to use in your classroom because they allow for differentiation along with choice.  Students are encouraged to think critically and creatively through the use of Choice Boards.
My students LOVE Choice Board and beg for time to work on them!
Each choice board has 9 activities or projects to choose from.  You can have the students do as little or as many as you want, and you enforce that students do one or two activities in particular if you choose.  You can have the Choice Boards be independent projects or partner projects.  
Top Ten reasons to ❤ choice boards!
1. Students love to be able to make choices in their learning
2. Allow for differentiation
3. Allow for student choice 
4. Students can choose according to their multiple intelligence
5. You can have the students do as little or as many as you want
6. You can enforce that students do one or two activities in particular if you choose
7. You can also differentiate among your students how many each activities to complete
8. You can choose to assign them as homework or classwork
9. Students love to be able to choose how they show you what they know
10. Students love them!

There are 30 different choice boards, each on a different science unit.

There is a selection of activities for each subject, many of them repeated as needed. Once my students knew my expectations and how to do a certain project, they felt more confident and were more successful in choosing the same project in a different topic. Students will be able to use the techniques, strategies, and activities that they are familiar with and transferring them to different units. 

Some of the projects include: Create a poster, Create an anchor chart, Design a computer project, Design and create a game, Create a 10-question quiz, and Create a foldable. 

My students enjoyed being able to find a project that they liked and being able to do that project again. It also saved me time so that I didn't have to reinvent the wheel and teach them new projects each week. It was a win-win for both of us; my students were able to work independently on their projects (without any help from me) while I was able to work with my small groups. 

A grading rubric along with a self evaluation is also included for you to use in assessing the Choice Boards.

My students loved Choice Boards!  My students worked on their Choice Boards while I met with my small groups for reteaching.  They loved to be able to choose how they showed me what they know.  I even used their posters in my classroom and their created word problems in their homework and quizzes.

Howdy! Thanks for checking out my store. Let me tell you a little bit about myself!

I'm from the great state of Texas, born and raised, so I'm southern all the way. I went to Texas A&M University and am a proud member of the Class of '95. Gig 'em! I also have my Masters in Education from the University of Texas at Arlington. I have 17 years experience in the classroom, from 2nd grade - 6th grade. As well as teaching in Texas, I also took a huge leap of faith and taught in Korea for a year. I taught English to blind students with disabilities, and it was the best experience of my whole life. I'm single and have 3 furry children, including one blind dog and one 3-legged dog. They are my loves.

I love bringing fun, laughter, choice, and creativity to the classroom. I hope that you will find those in my products. I absolutely love creating products for teachers to use in their classroom. If you have any questions, please email me at [email protected]
