At Math Camp we used response boards quite a bit during activities to respond to questions, problems, etc.
A response board is basically a little chalkboard. You write on it with chalk and can erase it very easily.
My two camp buddies and I headed to Michael’s on one of the nights in search of contact paper (among other things) and we actually ended up finding a cool chalkboard scrapbook paper pad.
The paper feels AMAZING–feels just like a chalkboard. And the chalk goes on and off beautifully!
After cutting the paper I decided to give it a duct tape border to make it a little more durable. I left a little space between the outside edge of the tape and the actual edge of the paper so it didn’t take up too much of my response board.
And there is no need to glue it to poster board–the paper is thick enough to be used by itself!
Come on over to see how I made my own version of the response boards!
