This set of task cards gives students the opportunity to practice the skills they need to become proficient when working with integers. The task cards are broken down into the following categories:
Writing Expressions Based Upon Integers
Identifying Points on a Number Line
Identifying the Opposite of a Given Point
Graphing Integers on a Number Line
Task cards are a great way to provide practice on a variety of skills. There are many options for using this tool in your classroom:
Allow early finishers to select cards to work on.
Use as seatwork instead of a textbook/worksheet assignment.
Use as extra practice for struggling students.
Use them to play Scoot (cards are laid out throughout the room and students rotate through the cards “Scooting” to the next one).
My favorite: Scavenger hunts! I mix up the cards and place them in random places throughout the room. Students have to hunt down all of the cards and solve them. I’ll usually have a prize for the first few finishers. Students who get a question wrong have the ability to go back and correct their work. I love that this gives them a chance to get up and moving, especially if we’ve been stuck indoors due to bad weather!
