When the teacher says to move, students will move to the next desk and answer the next question on that card. Keep moving until all questions have been answered.
Task Cards: Use these as task cards for a center, small group, or as independent work. Students will choose the correct answer and record it on the recording sheet. The recording sheets can be checked as a whole group or individually.
