Buyer Comments:

- "I must confess i've never worked before with task cards, all the work station preparation, the crowds, i thought that would be a lot of noise without significant learning, but this product really inspirated me, thanks to the clear instructions now i feel it's a great and funny way to review/check the knowledge of the students I'll try it with my Chemistry students, I'm sure they gonna love it! Thanks a lot!"

- "love the resource!"

- "Great materials! Thank you!"

- "Great product! I love the different ideas for using task cards!"

- "These are great for test review or for students who finish early and want more practice."

1) Typical task card review.
- You can simply distribute the Task Cards to your class for individual, group or whole class review
- The cue cards can be projected on the board for whole class review
- The cards work well as cue cards, test review, etc.

2) Task card review game - lots of fun!
- Students are placed in groups and have to work their way through the task cards. Each task card answer leads the student to a clue.
- Once the group has completed each task card they will have enough clues to solve the puzzle.
- Once the group has solved the puzzle, they are the winner.

The game is slightly more in-depth but the instructions are clear, detailed and include examples, you wont have a problem. Give it a try, your students will thoroughly review the unit and will love the activity and challenge the game brings.
