Product Description

This is a great activity for a center or station or small groups. This would be great to do at the beginning of the school year or before a big test. I consider this activity to be applicable to grades 5 through 9. I found that my 8th grade students struggled with knowing how to study and prepare for tests. Creating flashcards is a skill that can be used by students through college. Hopefully, this will give your students some direction in this area.

In this activity, students practice creating flashcards from notes. The sample notes are provided. I would make a couple of copies of the instruction page, which includes the sample notes, for the station. I recommend making copies of the example flashcards in a folder so that your students can do a comparison when they are done with their own flashcards.

To set up this activity, you need:

  • A file folder
  • Index cards (the number neededdependsonwhethereachstudent creates their own set of cards or if they will be working as a group to createtheflashcards)
  • One or more copies of “Station: Making and Using Flashcards” instructions
  • Optional:copies of the reflection page, which is printed two to a page
  • Optional:copy of “Why use flashcards?” mini-poster
