These 12 task cards were created to get my middle schoolers thinking beyond just a claim. Use these cards to help to prove the other side of a debate, sometimes the more difficult side! Each of these statements looks at a major component of any study of Ancient Rome (Republic, Empire, Julius Caesar, Punic Wars, Aqueducts, Baths, Emperors, etc...) and states an opinion about it. Students must use their skills and knowledge to try and identify two pieces of evidence to prove the statement wrong.
These cards can be used for:
Exit / Entrance Slips
Interactive Notebook Assignments
Introduction to writing counter-claims
