Product Description
These 96 Common Core Task Cards for Famous Americans (3 sets) will help your students practice some really important key reading skills, such as inference, character traits, and cause and effect, while integrating social studies topics. Kids will read a piece of information about a famous American on each card and will use the information provided to make an inference, determine the character trait shown, or to identify cause and effect.

I am so excited about these task cards. I love it when you combine social studies with reading skills practice. It just makes sense in an age when we don’t seem to have enough time to fit everything in. So, not only will your students get to work on reading skills that are some of the most important skills you can teach, but they are becoming more familiar and hopefully more interested in some famous people from America’s past.

I do love task cards and think they are such a versatile tool for the classroom. You can use them in a literacy center, in small groups, or even individually. They’re great for fast finishers or can be used as an assessment tool as well. Another option is to use one card at a time with the whole class. I like to keep a stack of cards on my desk that go with whatever concept we're working on and pull a few of them out to do together whenever we have a few extra minutes.

My favorite way to use task cards though, is to use them as a rotational activity. Simply print out the record sheet for each child and station the cards at different places around the room. You can call "Scoot" after a few minutes and kids rotate to the next station. Or depending upon the class, you can let the kids rotate to any card that's open. I love to send them on this "scavenger hunt" in buddies because I like to hear the kids collaborating on their answers. Kids love the movement too and it's always neat to see them really enjoying an activity and learning at the same time.

The task cards can be printed in color or grayscale and can be laminated and used again and again. Baggies are great to store them in or you could hole punch each card's corner and put them all on a ring. A plastic shoe box with dividers works really well to keep them organized.
