Task cards can be used in many different ways:

1. Centers and/or stations…since task cards can be done in any

order, they are easy to share.

2. In pairs or small groups

3. Whole class

a. Quick review before going home, or to specials

b. Teacher reads question, students write answers on white


c. Use as an assessment. Task cards don’t feel like a test, so

test phobic students are more relaxed.

4. Independent work at seats

5. Send home for homework as reinforcement for students

needing remediation

6. Test Prep

7. Games..Use game boards and dice. Place task cards upside down above game board. As students move around board they must answer task card questions. Partners use the grading key to tell if the answer is correct. Student may only move if the answer is correct.

8. Scoot...Give one answer sheet and one task card per student. Give students 30 seconds to answer their task card question on the answer sheet. Set timer for 30 seconds again and say, "Scoot". Student leaves his/her card on their desk and move to the next seat to answer that question. When the timer dings say, "Scoot" again and students move to next seat until all cards are answered on the answer sheet.

9. Scavenger Hunt...Hide cards around the classroom. Give each student one answer sheet. Students search for cards and answer them as they are found.

10. Jenga...Number Jenga blocks to 36 (or less if you wish). Students play in groups of three-four and take turns pulling them out. Students all answer the task card number on each block on their answer sheet until the Jenga blocks tumble.

11. Exit ticket...Pass one task card to each student plus one sticky note. Students answer on the sticky note and place on board on the way out the door.
