Choice Board Examples & Strategies

Use the Choice Board to allow students to display their voice and choice within their learning. The Choice Board can be used in multiple ways by the teacher to:

  • Engage students who finish early
  • Assess what students have learned at different points throughout the Unit
  • Extend the Unit or lesson
  • Allow students to display their learning in the Share section

The Choice Board is intended to provide content that can be added to the classroom’s existing Choice Board or to any bulletin board in the classroom.

The following is the Choice Board for this Unit:

Choice Board
Design a Course
Draw up your own course for the Code Base to drive through. Be sure to include measurements and the path the robot is supposed to travel.
Eye Sensor Sees
Look around your classroom, and make a list of all the objects the Eye Sensor could see based on color. How many red, blue, or green objects can you list in 60 seconds?
Tell the Story
Write a story about what the Code Base is doing as it drives through the slalom course or the disk maze in this Unit. Think about what it could be trying to do, or running away from, or looking for.
Superhero Code Base
If your Code Base was a superhero what would its superpowers be? Make a Superhero card to explain what makes it special, and create a logo or accessory for your Superhero Code Base.
Slalom Sums
Add up the total distance your Code Base drove to get through the slalom course in Lab 1. How many millimeters (or inches) did it drive? How many meters (or feet)?
Bumper Brainstorm
Make a list of things that you think use a bumper sensor in real life. Then, make a list of things you think might work better if they had a bumper sensor on them.
Color Coding Game
Make a follow the leader style game that uses color coding to make the players do different actions. Like 'VEX Says' (or shows) red, and players raise their right foot. Write out the color code actions, then play with a friend.
Write a letter to a VEX GO Engineer about what you’ve learned about VEX GO so far, and explain one thing you hope to be able to do with VEX GO in the future.
Remote Design
What is something you wish you could control remotely? Make a design for your remote controlled invention and explain why it would be helpful.
