Product Description
Critical and Differentiated Thinking Task Cards: Earth Day Volunteering

Critical and differentiated thinking Earth Day task cards are great for differentiation, morning work, literacy centers, math centers, early finishers and fast finishers.

Students will use character cards as manipulative tools (when needed) to think critically and solve logic problems. Cards will be moved around for each of 10 tasks as solutions are generated. Cards are NOT needed for all tasks. Optional "center sign" is included as well as answer document and key.

These cards are designed to be used with:
* high performing KG student
* 4th grade student needing remediation

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
** Example of More Challenging Problem **
Gardening Grace was very excited to help plant a garden at her school!

Which vegetable did each student plant?

* Gardening Grace did not plant radishes but preferred  a leafy green
vegetable.
* Sunny Sarah finished her plantings last because  she was helping
the boy who planted corn.
* Conservation Cory planted tomatoes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
** Example of Less Challenging Problem **
Some of the students decided to meet at the library around
noon to conduct their research. Use the clues to determine
the order in which each student arrived.

* Gardening Grace arrived last while Conservation Cory  walked in
immediately before her.
* Worldly Whitney awoke early and arrived at exactly  12:00 noon.
* Melody Meadow arrived by bike.
