Visual Ranking Tool: STEM Unit Plans

The Visual Ranking tool is all about comparing and prioritizing information. When ordering and prioritizing items on a list, higher-level skills of analysis and evaluation are put to use. In these unit plans students identify and refine criteria as they assign order or ranking to a list. Students must explain their reasoning and can compare their work with each other in a visual diagram. This tool supports activities where students need to organize ideas, debate differences, and reach consensus.
