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
Would you rather run at a high speed for a short amount of time, or a low speed for a longer amount of time? Ask fellow classmates and gather data.
Write a story about an animal that wants to be faster! Use as many vocabulary words as you can.
Draw a comic strip story about how to make a prediction.
Research the fastest animal in the world. What speed can it move at? Make a poster with all the information you gather.
Super Car Challenge:
Make the Super Car travel 50 cm (~20 in) and knock over a wood block. What variables did you change to finish the challenge?
Write a song about how average speed is calculated. Use your favorite song to come up with the tune!
How Fast Are You?:
Make a prediction about how fast you can run. Write a letter to your teacher explaining why you think you can run that fast. When you have the permission of an adult, test your prediction!
Estimation Game:
How long do you think a pencil is? A piece of paper? Write down estimates of how long things are and test your estimates by measuring with a ruler.
Listen to your teacher and classmates as they talk about the Unit. How many times do you hear a vocabulary word? Keep count!
