Teachers Who Have Used This Product Have Said:

"Used the cards as an inquiry activity allowing students to choose how to sort them first before I guided them into the abiotic/biotic. Like that there are 18 examples for each. Large amount was great for my more advanced students and I could reduce the number of examples for those who needed adaptations."
-Renee F.

"I used these task cards as part of a station day to help them understand the difference between abiotic and biotic. Love the product and the kids liked it too! The pictures are clear and of good quality." - Tiffani R.

"This is awesome. My students enjoyed this card sort & it really helped to reinforce the concepts taught. Love all of your stuff."
