You can use these electricity task cards to enhance your science lessons by presenting key concepts along with higher level thinking skills. These cards give students an opportunity to review key vocabulary terms, while using their prior knowledge to think deeper about the topic.
These task cards may be used for test review purposes, or to assess students’ prior knowledge about electricity. You may want to work through a few cards per day as a whole class, creating discussions around the responses. These cards will work well in literacy centers, work stations, partner activities, or as part of a whole class activity like Scoot.
This set contains 40 electricity task cards. There are 36 multiple choice cards and 4 extended response cards. I have included a set of blank cards to allow you to create your own questions about electricity. A full answer key is included. The student‐ friendly answer document allows you to correct their responses quickly and easily.
The cards may be printed in color or grayscale format. They could be laminated and used year after year.
Many of the concepts presented in this activity can be reinforced by having your students play my Electricity Bingo game listed on here TPT. Thanks!
