A recording sheet is also provided for the second research activity but answers will vary depending on the resources you choose to use.
How to Prepare
*Print and Laminate Task Cards
*Print Recording Sheets
*Place Cards Around the Room or in Center (LA or Science)

How to Implement
Task Cards are a fun and interactive way to get your students moving around the classroom while practicing skills. After placing the cards around the room, send your students off with a clipboard and recording sheet. Students read each card and decide if the a fact or opinion has been stated. Then they will write their answer on the recording sheet. This can be used as a pretest before teaching or to assess what has been learned.
Alternative Way to Utilize
Use as a teaching tool. Have students use print or online resources to find proof their answers are correct. This can be done individually, with a partner, or as a group activity. Recording sheets are provided.
