24 task cards feature engaging science nonfiction text about animals, plants, and health topics, along with 5 mixed reading skills questions per card. A total of 120 questions help students review word meanings (including context clues, multiple meaning words, and synonyms), supporting details, sequence, cause and effect, compare and contrast, inferencing, and more. These cards are perfect for the whole class or small groups. Great for centers, warmups, early finishers, or test prep!
The readability levels of these paragraphs is in the 3rd-5th grade range.
