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  

Deep Dive about Parades Students will research parades using safe search techniques. 
Vocabulary Word Mosaic Students will apply vocabulary words to each lesson with pictures and words. 
Parade Story Students will write a story about what is happening during their parade. 
Make a Float Character Using pieces from the VEX GO Kit, students can design and build a person to sit on their float. 
Vocabulary Stories Write or draw a story using all the vocabulary words. 
Parade Jingle Write a song about a robot going through a parade. 
Programmer Create pseudocode that would make the Code Base robot do a dance! 
Decompose a School Day Create a play or a story that has all the steps for a school day. Each scene can be one step! 
Parade Colors Draw a design for your parade float. Which colors would you use? 
Additional Math Choice Board
If teaching Labs 4 and 5, these additional Choice Board activities can be used to supplement the mathematical concepts and activities that students are exploring in these Labs.
Circumference Find three circular objects in your classroom. Measure the diameter of each one and use the formula C=πD to find the circumference of each object. 
Would you rather? Make a "would you rather" list using one fraction and one decimal for each question. For example, Would you rather eat 3/8 of a pizza or 0.25 of a pizza?" Make a list of 10 questions and answer them. Then ask a friend to answer them. Do you agree with each other? Why or why not? 
Measure Me Use the printable VEX GO Ruler to measure the length of a Gray Large Beam and a Yellow Large Beam. How many Yellow Large Beams would it take to equal the length of a Gray Large Beam? Can you write this as a fraction? Can you find more fractions by comparing the measurements of other VEX GO pieces?

Fractions of a Circle Trace a large circle on a piece of paper and cut it out. Fold it in half, and then open it up. What fractions of the circle do you have? Repeat this process and see how small you can make your fractions.
