Get your students thinking about their environment with this set of 40 Earth + the environment task card bundle. This science task card activity goes well with Earth day lessons or studies of the environment. Many of these task cards are geared to get kids thinking about the care of the environment (recycling, saving energy, reusing goods, etc.). Other cards reinforce facts about the Earth.
The last four task cards are extended response questions, which require students to provide a written response similar to the format of state environmental science assessment items. I have included a set of blank cards to allow you to create your own questions about the Earth and the environment if needed. All other cards use a multiple choice format, and a full answer key is included. The student‐friendly answer document allows you or your students to correct their responses quickly and easily.
You may want to work through a few cards per day as a whole class, creating discussions around the responses. These cards also work well with literacy centers, work stations, partner activities, or as part of a whole class activity like Scoot.
The cards may be printed in color or grayscale format. They look best when printed on a high quality color laser printer. They can be laminated and used year after year with no additional copying needed (except for answer forms). You may also wish to use a ring or fastener to keep the cards attached as a set.
