Task Cards for Early Finishers or Center Activities
Have students record their answers on the provided page (or just have students number a blank page from 1-24). Students answer the question on each card on their paper. An answer key is available.
To play Scoot, you place a card on each child’s desk. Each child should answer their card on the correct location on their recording sheet. Make sure students look at the card number to see where to begin on their recording sheet. Then when you give a signal all students move to the next desk and record the next answer. Check answers at the end as a class.
