Product Description

This purchase includes 18 short passages with critical thinking question prompts on each card. The passages are a mix between historical, technical, or scientific texts. Students are asked to find cause-and-effect relationships using details from the multiple types of texts provided for them.

I really created these cards because my students were able to identify the run of the mill cause-and-effect relationships, but when it came to reading specific informational text, they were struggling to explain what happened and why. These cards provided them extra support with not only identifying cause and effect, but also strengthening their reading comprehension skills of informational text. They were able to make connections to what they were learning about in their science and social studies classes, too.

On these task cards students are asked to complete any of the following tasks:

→Multi-select tasks

→Identify evidence that supports an answer

→Short response

→Fill in charts

I usually print out the task cards, laminate, and place on binder rings so the passages are easy to flip through. I assign these task cards during rotation time for my higher groups. With my lower groups, I use this as my teacher time so I can hear their thinking and guide them through the different question prompts.

Recording sheets and answer key included!
