These task cards about the Chinese zodiac let your students demonstrate their knowledge of capitalization, punctuation, spelling, and grammar. Each card has one sentence on it about one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. Sentences are written in simple English so your ELLs who are at an intermediate proficiency level or your older students who are not reading at grade level can comprehend them. Younger students can also use them as a review.

(Please note: This product is included in a mega bundle with 5 resources about China at a savings of 25% and is available HERE, and is also included in a smaller bundle with 2 resources at a savings of 20%, available HERE.)

Each sentence has one error in mechanics or grammar and the task for your students is to identify the type of error and then fix it so the sentence is written correctly. Multiple choice responses are included on each task card. An answer sheet for your students and an answer key for yourself are both provided. Task cards are in color because the animal images are photographs taken by me of an artifact bought in China.

You can use these low-prep task cards in multiple ways: As a pre-assessment to determine what your students already know about capitalization, punctuation, spelling, and grammar. Or use these task cards as a formative review. They can also be given as a homework task, be used as a reward, or be used just for fun. Students can work on them individually, in pairs, or in small groups. Your students will also enjoy learning a little about the Chinese zodiac in whatever way these task cards are used.
