5 Choice Board Templates To Save You Time

Decades of research on the science of learning tells us that if you want an engaged community of learners, build in choice! Your students will be more motivated to learn and actually perform better. An added benefit for teachers– you’ll get much more interesting work to grade!


Choice boards are a great way to add variety at the end of a busy school year, providing students with differentiated options for process, product, or content.

But with limited planning time, educators often feel like there’s little time to research, plan, and prepare multiple options for assignments and activities. So how can you build in easy options with little prep? Try a choice board! We’ve gathered some of our favorite templates to build in choice, but save you time. Just grab a template, modify it to fit your curriculum, student grade level, and style, then go!
