PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use these task cards to give your students practice with identifying claim, evidence and opposing claim - all based on two texts about Easter Island.

Students read the two texts and then use these cards to practice with the vocabulary. You can do this in many ways, but my two favorites are playing Scoot and Scatter. (Directions for both are included).

Included in this resource:
★ 2 rigorous texts about Easter Island
★ 20 task cards
★ 1 poster with text-based essay vocabulary terms
★ directions to play Scoot and Scatter with the cards
★ answer sheets
★ answer key

I used this in my own 8th grade class and followed it up with my Argumentation Mystery Picture based on the same 2 texts. This gave students a lot of practice with these 3 terms and helped us to be better prepared when we were writing our own essays.
