This set of 24-task cards challenges students to infer the setting of each high-interest text. Designed for my 6th grade middle school students, the original passages offer authentic grade-level practice. Use them as an informal assessment, for center work, or small group instruction. Three versions of student answer sheets are provided, so you can easily differentiate this activity (answer only, match answers, answer and support with text evidence). Answer keys are provided for all three.
I’ve also embedded context clue practice in each task card, so you can sneak in some extra vocabulary work, or use the cards in a separate context clue lesson. There’s a key for this as well.
