This is a fun, interactive way for students to review information that they’ve learned about Africa’s geography. You will print and cut out the 30 task cards, and then tape the cards around your classroom, spacing them out so that they aren’t too close together. During the Gallery Walk, the students will move around the room and answer the questions on the cards. They will write their responses to the task cards on their recording sheet. Task Cards are a fun (and sneaky) way of getting students to answer questions that would normally be on boring, old worksheets! Students love working with them!
