What a great time of the year to practice Order of Operations skills with season-based task cards!
There are 20 task cards included in this set that includes parentheses, brackets, and exponents. An Answer Recording Sheet and a step-by-step Answer Key as well as a final-answer Answer Key are included which makes it easier for you to check students' work. Or, you can print them out for students' self-evaluation! Students love task cards in centers, but they are also great for cooperative groups or pairs and whole class activities. Cut them out and laminate them to keep for use each Halloween season.
Order of operations skills are aligned with the 5th and 6th grade Common Core State Standards and would also be excellent for use with advanced 4th graders or as a review for 7th graders.
