Give your students a reason behind the use of integers. These 20 task cards allow your students to see that the use of positive and negative numbers has a purpose outside of their math homework! 16 of the cards give students a situation and ask them to write the integer to represent that situation. The final 4 cards give students an integer and ask them to write a situation to represent it. An answer key and recording sheet are included to make it quick and easy to assess students.
I like to laminate the cards, punch a hole in the corner, and keep them together with a binder ring. I use them as a whole class, small group, partner activity, reteaching activity, resource project, extra practice or to incorporate as a game. It can be fun to send a card home with each student for homework, or use them as an exit ticket! There are a million ways to use task cards - you can even print them and have students glue one or two in a math notebook. They print great in color or just a standard black-and-white setting on your printer.
