American Revolutionary War Task Cards! Students will love learning about the American Revolution with these 22 SCOOT Task Cards and matching vocab cards. Play a game of SCOOT, post them around the room for students to complete while moving (great for active learners), or use the included vocabulary cards to have students match the "What am I?" clues to the correct Revolutionary War vocabulary terms at a center.
American Revolutionary War Vocabulary Words Included:
*includes 2 Brain Breaks, in which students stretch and relax for a single card each.
What am I? Directions
Task Card Set Up
Print the task cards and cut in quarters to separate the four cards on each page. (I like to print them on colored paper and laminate to use over and over.) Post the task cards around the classroom (My students love when I build the excitement by hiding a couple cards under tables and behind doors). Alternatively, you may place one card at each desk for SCOOT, or all of the cards at a Science center.
Pass out the student response sheets (printed front/back). Ask students to read the words in the word bank to determine what the words have in common. Direct them to check their answer at the bottom left of the sheet. (Answer: They all have to do with the American Revolution!).
Independently or in pairs, students locate task cards with their copy of the student response sheet. Students read the clues carefully to determine which word bank word is being described. The cards can be read in any order. Students simply record their answers on the line that matches the number on the bottom left of each task card.
If you’d like students to self-check their answers, place the answer key in a folder at their working space.
*Differentiation: For tactile learners, vocabulary word cards are provided. Have students match the vocabulary words with the “What am I” clues before listing their final answers on the student answer document.
Happy Teachering! :)
