I hope you are able to use these and your students learn some interesting facts about
Hurricanes as well as review their math skills as well.
These are task cards that can be used several different ways – below is a list showing the ways in which I have used them in my class. The answer sheet is attached. I also have included the individual slides of each task card so that if you would like to use as a whole group to check or go over slides when students have finished the task cards.
1.Place cards at a center and have students answer individually during center time.
2.Place cards around the room and have students go on a scavenger hunt finding the next problem and recording their answers on the answer sheet. I ring a bell when it is time to move to next card.
3.Make enough copies of the task cards for each table or pair of students to work together and solve as a team.
4.Use the individual slides included with the purchase to have students solve individually and then solve as a class.
5.Individually task cards can serve as reinforcement for students who need more time achieving the specific skill needed for a topic. They are better than worksheets in my opinion.
6.You can use task cards as a game-like activity like “Scoot”. Students will be given different cards to answer for a certain period of time, perhaps 2-3 minutes (depending on the students) Students will then answer it on their own. It can be written in their notebooks, papers, or in a task card journal. When allotted time is over, teacher will say “Scoot” and the students move to next card that awaits them.
