It is important to promote writing across the disciplines. Sometimes it is difficult to come up with writing prompts. These task cards are specific to secondary science and they cover Chemistry: Classification of Matter.
This activity can be used as a bell ringer, pop quiz or closing. It is a good exercise to make the brief students write longer and the novel writers write shorter answers.
There are 31 writing prompts with instructions as to how many sentences they should write. You can adjust the pages per sheet setting to print multiple cards per sheets of paper.
