A fantastic way to use task cards is by playing Scoot!
SCOOT is an easy, fun, fast paced game that will get the kids up and moving around.
Place a task card on each desk in numerical order. Each student will read the sentence and will write down the correct answer on their sheet. Then after a minute or two, say "SCOOT!" and the students will SCOOT over to the next seat and get started on the next question straight away.
Scoot Tips and directions are included.
28 task cards.
Numbers for desks (optional)
BONUS! 6 Brain Breaks/Teasers are included too!
You can also laminate the cards and have students write their answers directly on the cards with dry erase markers or they can use the included student recording sheets. Two styles of answer sheets for each set are included for self-checking if desired.
