Task cards are great because they can be used in SO many different ways...My personal favorites are #5, #7, and especially #8!
(1) Daily review/warm-up problems
(2) Class-wide review - Teacher puts task card under document camera, students work with a neighbor and show answers on work recording sheet.
(3) Scoot Games - I put desks in a circle-ish shape and have each student work on a card. After about a minute or two, I have them rotate onto the next desk. Once students have come full circle, we check the answers together as a class.
(4) Speed Dating - Students go on mini "math dates" where each student is the expert on one problem. Each "date" rotation lasts for 3-4 minutes. On each rotation, students trade their problem with their "date's" problem. If either student gets stuck, it's OK because the person they're sitting with is the expert on that problem and can help. When the pair is done, they switch their cards back and one row rotates.
(5) Stations - put 2 task cards at each station around your classroom. Have students work in small groups and give them 3-4 minutes per station before rotating.
(6) Partner work - students work on the task cards at their desks with a partner.
(7) Climb the Ladder - Students work in groups to successfully complete 4 task cards at a time. Once the 4 task cards are done, a representative from the group checks the answers with a teacher. If all problems are correct, the group gets to move on ("climb up the ladder") to the next round of 4 task cards. If they are incorrect, the teacher sends the student back to their group to do some error detection.
(8) Connect 4 - Think BINGO but 4x4 instead of 5x5. Students go WILD for this game and ask if they can stay during lunch to keep playing. Connect 4 playing cards and a special Connect 4 work recording sheet are included!
Why do I love Connect 4 so much?!
Not only is it insanely low prep, but students get quick feedback on how they're doing so they can learn and grow from their mistakes over the course of the activity. Whenever I play this game with my students, they beg to keep going after class has ended, asking if they can just play 5 more minutes during their passing time. This is perfect for an Algebra 1 class, but I also use it with my Algebra 2 students for beginning of the year review. Even my older students love this game! Sometimes, I play the game with whiteboards, and students love that way, too!
