About the Differentiation & Tiering:
This product is differentiated for upper elementary and/or middle school students. A color-shape code is found on the lower right corner of every task card to help you differentiate concepts for your students' needs and abilities. Concepts are differentiated as basic, intermediate or advanced.

Each card is denoted with a "signal strength" to code for lower, mid and higher order thinking:
• Cards with a “low” signal strength assess students on knowledge and comprehension.
• Cards with a “medium” signal strength assess students on application and analysis.
• Cards with a “high” signal strength assess students on synthesis and evaluation.

These task cards are great for:
✓ Science centers
✓ Assessment
✓ Independent Study
✓ Review
