Multiple Choice Underwater Adventure!

Today we worked on answering multiple choice writing questions. The task was to find the best order of the sentences in order to make a paragraph (a popular M.C. type question on EQAO). 

The questions were in the context of an underwater adventure. This is a piece of software my wife and I wrote a couple of years ago (and is also an iBook in the iBook Store). Its goal is to make multiple choice questions more engaging (students love the sound effects).

Students discussed the answer to each question with a partner and used a whiteboard to help sort out and record their thinking.
