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
School Robot
Students will create a job that a robot can do for their school. They will explain the job, how the robot will complete the task and present their idea to the teacher or principal.
Robot Poll
Take a classroom poll! Ask students what type of job they would have if they were robots. Would the job be classified as dangerous, dull, or dirty? Why?
Newspaper Ad
Students will create an add in a newspaper for a robot job they need. The ad should explain what the robot should be able to do to perform the job successfully.
Persuade the Robot
Write a persuasive letter informing a robot who is working in a dangerous, dull or dirty environment to switch over to another. The persuasive letter should convince the robot to switch its working environment.
Helping Humans
Create a poster on why you think robots help humans by performing certain jobs for us. Include research and pictures to defend your opinion.
Robot Scavenger Hunt
Students will create a map for a robot to find different items around the school. Students can draw the map first and then create a project using VEXcode GO for the robot to complete the scavenger hunt.
Make a VEX Robot
Using the Code Base robot and additional pieces from the VEX GO Kit, create your own robot. Share with the class. What is the robot's name and what jobs will it be able to do to help humans?
Guess that Robot Job
Research different types of robot jobs and create a description for each job. Quiz one of your classmates, guardians or teachers to see if they can guess what Robot Job you are describing. See how much they know about robots!
Robot Timeline
Create a timeline starting from the first robot invented, see how far your timeline can go!
