I use Study Island in my classroom every day during Guided Reading stations! I love creating a weekly assignment that my students can use to review topics we have already learned. This rewards chart is what I use to motivate my students to get those blue ribbons!
Your students have awoken on an deserted island. How are they going to survive? Food, shelter, water, who knows? This project based learning activity asks students to problem solve and world-build, unlike anything they've done before. It brings together design, SS, art, writing, and collaboration. Go to the island and get lost. $
STUDY ISLAND TRACKER: It was only a matter of time before the novelty of our new program wore off. Study Island was fun at first, but eventually my students were just click-click-clicking their way through assignments, at times with out even reading! The Study Island Tracker asks students to complete 10 questions and do three things: record whether they got a question wrong or right, reflect on WHY they may have answered a question incorrect, write the explanations for the correct answer.
My 14 year old freshman and 13 year old seventh grade twins WISH theyd been able to prepare for standardized tests in a similar way. The dreaded Study Island can be a cooperative learning game for those who out~wonder, out~perform, and out~learn to become the ultimate Study Island survivor!Pages 1 and 2: IntroductionPage 3: how to makePage 4: how to playPage 5: printable Study Island Survivor Game Challenge posterPages 6-9: printable tribe name postersPage 10: printable answer cardsPages…
