These cards are used with the Level Up Learning Framework. To start - place the cards in envelopes or a pocket chart labeled with 1A, 1B, 1C etc as the first level, 2A, 2B, 2C is the 2nd level, 3A, 3B, 3C for the 3rd level, etc. You can have as many levels as you would like. The template allows up to 10 levels and 5 cards on each level. I would recommend only 2 or 3 cards per level (1A, 1B or 1A, 1B, 1C but you can go out to cards 1D and 1E if you so choose).
Card 1A is a question. If the students get card 1A correct they go to 2A, so the question for 2A should be slightly more difficult than 1A. If they get Card 1A incorrect they go to card 1B. Card 1B should have the same question as 1A but with answer choices added or a hint added to help the students answer the card. Card 1C should have either less choices or another hint. Each time a student gets a card correct they move to card A on the next level.
Please Email me for further information on creating the cards at firstname.lastname@example.org. Put "TPT Help Request" in the subject line.
How Students Play the game:
1 – Student work with a partner/group of 2 or 3
2- Assign roles: One person is the recorder and another as the runner (If a 3rd role is needed have one person be the problem solver and the problem solver tells the recorder what to write and how to answer the question).
3 –All students start at 1A.
4 - Everyone must include work or explain on the recording sheet.
5- Students may only answer one card at a time.
6- When students are done with 1A the runner takes their recording sheet to the Checker (the teacher can be the checker, but I would recommend choosing a couple of students to be checkers).
7-If 1A is correct students go to 2A (Put 1A back in the correct pocket/envelope)
If 1A is incorrect go to 1B; If 1B is incorrect go to 1C etc.
If 1B/1C/1D/1E is correct go to 2A
If the group reaches card 1E they need to see the teacher for help.
Repeat the above process for every level.
You always start each level at Card "A".
8- Students rotate roles after every question card.
9- Remind students to not write on the task cards - have them erase it or let you know if they accidentally write on the card.
