This set of 35 nonfiction task cards will challenge your students and ask them to apply their knowledge about informational or nonfiction text. Bright, colorful, and engaging cards that can be used many different ways. Easily used in small or large group instruction; can be used multiple days as reinforcement to several mini-lessons; can also be placed in a center or station and used as an independent activity. Recording sheet and answer sheet make it easy to use for an end of the unit grade. I have also used several personal pictures of mine to add interest. These cards are intended to support my SMARTboard lesson on same topic, but they are not dependent on that lesson. Great activity for partner work or studying elements of nonfiction or informational text . Some cards may be challenging for 3rd and critical skills are needed.
