Each task card has a question about Matilda that requires students to think deeply, critically, and creatively about the novel. I use them for whole-class and small-group discussion; however, they can be cut apart and used as task cards if you're more interested in using them as an individual writing activity.
These task cards are divided into three sections:
Section 1: pages 7-65 (18 questions)
Section 2: pages 66-158 (20 questions)
Section 3: pages 159-240 (16 questions)
I also left a few blank cards for you so you can come up with your own questions if you'd like to do so!
