Four Corner Questions
During our extended block schedule period, my students get a little restless and need a quick activity. Rather than give them a written quiz, I ask them a multiple choice question about the current topic of study and assign each corner of the room a possible answer and letter. To avoid the problem of everyone following the smart kids to the correct corner, I let them know that I’ve struck a deal with the “brains” for them to purposely pick the incorrect corner sometimes to throw the others off.
The kids love it because the activity involves everyone, serves as a quick and easy way to check for understanding, and after doing this a couple of times, they’re ready to return to their seats for more learning!
