Cubing

Elementary

Differentiated by Multiple Intelligence

Through the differentiated instruction power point PDF [PDF: 51 pages / 920k] and the lessons in your FOR-PD course, you have been exposed to the benefits of using cubing in the classroom.  Although you may choose to develop cubes that have a mixture of activities/questions, you may also choose to have separate cubes for different groups of students. In the latter case, students would work in groups differentiated by the same factor that you differentiated your cubes. Let’s look at examples of some cubes that have been differentiated by multiple intelligences. In this case, the teacher would assign the students to one of three groups based on previous assessment information they have regarding their favored intelligence. 

These cubes were designed for the story: Charlotte’s Web

Red Cube (Verbal Linguistic)

Blue Cube (Visual Spatial)

Green Cube (Body Kinesthetic)
