Informational Text Features and Exploring Space: Are your students crazy about space topics?

Note: This package contains two sets about exploring space. Each can be purchased separately.

It’s true that sometimes non-fiction reading is harder text to read and comprehend. This Fantastic set will help with that, save you time, and save a little bit of money, too!

This package is a combo package of a non-fiction text features task card set and a word wall and vocabulary set with the topic: Exploring Space.

Set 1:Non-Fiction Task Cards: Exploring Space This is a set of 48 Task Cards that will address many things: non-fiction text features, non-fiction reading, and applying what has been learned. Students read non-fiction passages about space topics and use text features to complete task cards. The reading passages are designed to resemble magazine pages with colorful photos, clipart, and sections. The task cards are also color-coded. The task cards include multiple choice answers and open-ended challenges. The cards include: determining the type of non-fiction text feature in the article (these are blue), basic comprehension questions (these are green), and open-ended cards (these are purple). The open-ended tasks use non-fiction text features! Open-ended tasks include: writing sentences; writing paragraphs; creating tables and charts; drawing and labeling; comparing with charts or tables; creating a mini glossary; and writing descriptions.

For your convenience this package also includes a complete set with limited color. The multiple choice questions are also included in a worksheet format. An answer sheet is included with an answer key.

Task cards are the PERFECT choice for morning work time, center work, early finishers, and substitute days. Complete these tasks in your Language or Science Notebooks or as stand-alone activities.
