Ditch the Worksheet.

Your kids need to practice, but worksheets have them bored to tears. This premium quality Endothermic vs. Exothermic Card Sort provides you and your students endless opportunities for effective practice and review. Just copy, laminate, and cut and these versatile cards will add variety, engagement, and differentiation to your classroom and lessons. The included PowerPoint makes it possible to check whole-class comprehension, have students self-assess, or go over written homework.

Using A Card Sort.

There are a variety of ways to use a card sort:

  • Preview—Working in groups, as an introduction to the lesson, students can sort these cards based on their prior experience. Use with or without the Category and Definition cards to change the difficulty of the activity based on your students abilities.
  • Practice—After the lesson, use these cards as a way for students to practice.
  • Review—These cards are great any time you feel your students need to review this skill.
  • Games—Whether you play Quiz, Quiz, Trade or a rousing game of trashketball, these cards are the perfect addition.

Getting Started.

  • Decide whether you are going to print in color or blackline. The cards look great either way.
  • Decide how you are going to use the cards. The most economical method is to use in small groups. This allows you to print fewer card decks.
  • Print your card decks. If you choose to print in color, white cardstock is recommended. If you print in blackline, I recommend using colored cardstock to make the ink-saving cards stand out.
  • Laminating increases the useful life of the cards.
  • Cut apart your cards. The card sheets are designed to be printed at 100% on 8 1/2” x 11” paper. You save paper and ink with the economical nine playing card-sized cards per page.
  • For an added touch of professional quality, try cutting some corners...literally. An inexpensive round corner punch not only makes the cards look better but makes them easier to handle.
  • Whether you use an envelope, a sandwich bag, or a rubber band, store your cards between uses so you have them the next year.
