★HOW TO USE TASK CARDS AND/OR PLAY “SCOOT”★
--> Option 1: Print out the cards and have students SCOOT the cards in a circle around the room. The cards move, the kids don’t.
--> Option 2: Print out the cards, tape them all around your classroom, and have students SCOOT around the room with their answer sheets. The kids move, the cards don’t.
--> Option 3: Each student gets their own set of cards. This might be helpful if your students are struggling to find the actual CLUES in the writing. Students highlight or mark up the cards.
