These 50 critical-thinking geometry task cards will get kids moving and thinking about Geometry! Use them as a whole-class movement activity, a Problem of the Day/Week, a math center, classwork, or homework. They provide wonderful opportunities for students to analyze and communicate their thoughts about Geometry.
As a whole-class activity, display the three beautiful color posters: "Always", "Sometimes", and "Never". Read one of the 50 task cards and direct students to stand under the sign they think most appropriate. Give students time to discuss their reasoning.
All 50 questions are formatted in two ways: in black and white for copying and in beautiful color for a center. These questions can serve as pre- or post-assessments, homework, or classwork. They are excellent samples to share at parent conferences or to be placed in a student portfolio.
Train students to use both words and pictures when making their explanations. They need to write the term “always true”, “sometimes true”, or “never true”, then go into their explanation. Encourage them to tell why they make a decision. This will support critical-thinking and writing in other subject areas. This practice will also support working with constructed responses on assessments.
