December Task Menu

November 15, 2009

Students can choose from a multiple intelligences task menu that includes: writing a sensory poem or number poem, using a Venn-diagram to compare two books, creating a comic strip, a discussion and drawing conclusions graphic, free choice activities, constructing a model, writing a quatrain, adapting materials, and using imagination.
All activities can be adapted to use with any elementary grade level. My first graders have already had experience with these types of activities, so they are able to do this independently during station time.
