This activity can be used multiple ways. Cards can be printed out as task cards with answers on the flip side. In one version of EASEL answers are blocked out with text boxes for student write in answers. In a 2nd version of EASEL, students drop and drag items into a given order and can then check their answer.

This activity reviews measurement and comparative vocabulary used in math problems. Students use a higher level of thinking to make comparisons between items. Each task card has 4 items listed in random order and a descriptor. Students are required to reorder the items according to the descriptor.

The task card set includes 36 task cards on 9 pages

. They are best if printed on cardstock. Each sheet has 4 cards with a front card and a back card side by side. Cut the horizontal lines and then fold on the vertical lines. This will create a double sided card which you can glue or laminate shut. The front card provides the list of words to place in order and the back side has the answer with the items ordered correctly.

I have used these with students in the 4th through 6th grade levels as some of my students are still having difficulty with these concepts.
