These task cards were created for a Microorganisms unit for a Utah 6th grade classroom but works with any 5th – 7th graders. Focuses are characteristics, benefits, and diseases caused by protists, fungus, and bacteria, types of protists and their modes of transportation, and scientists who made discoveries with microbiology. These are wonderful for test review. I use these for science centers, whole class, individual, or partner work. I spiral review the questions throughout the year to prepare for year-end testing. An answer key and student work space are provided. Consider copying the task cards onto cardstock and laminating them for use in years to come. If you don’t want to copy them, just display them on your projector and solve them as a whole class. Some cards are multiple choice while others are fill-in-the-blank.
