I am always in search of the perfect informational text resources to share with my students. I find that the more recent the information and material, the more enthusiastic and engaged my students will be! In addition, the majority of my students dream of being NFL or NBA superstars. I created these AMAZING ATHLETES Informational Text Task Cards for each of these reasons.

This Task Card resource includes:
• 32 informational text task cards about current athletes
• CCSS covered
• clear directions for immediate implementation
• student answer document
• answer key

Simply print the task cards, laminate them, print out student answer documents, and off your students can go! Use these for independent work, partners, small groups, in a literacy center, or for a whole class scoot. A tool with many uses!

Athletes shared:
Robert Griffin III AKA RG3
Cam Newton
Russell Wilson
Andy Dalton
LeBron James
Kevin Durant
Joakim Noah
Blake Griffin

You can use this in correlation with my All About Athletes Close Reading Fun Pack!

Sometimes it is that one tool that encourages that breakthrough in learning and understanding.

For ALL of my TASK CARDS for Literacy Centers or Test Review:

• Amazing Athlete Informational Text Task Cards

• Character Analysis Task Cards

• Context Clue Task Cards to Middle School

• Martin Luther King Jr. Informational Text Task Cards
