Do you need the perfect TEK-aligned activity for your measurement & graphing math centers this year? We’ve got just the fit! Whether you're introducing the concept of elapsed time at the beginning of the unit or reviewing dot plots and pictograms while preparing for the STAAR test, our professionally edited questions will help you to confidently prepare your students with 210 task cards that are attractively designed, standard-focused, and thoughtfully differentiated.
Included in this package are a total of 210 task illustrated task cards which are contained within 7 sets (1 for each standard). The differentiated questions start off covering the basics and gradually move towards critical thinking word problems near the end of each set. Assign only sections of each set or assign whole sets depending on what your students’ needs are.
Make sure to check out the product preview above for a close-up view of the task cards.
✔ 210 uniquely illustrated task cards with additional sets that have colorful border options.
✔ 210 full page images that can be printed out, used in whole-group instruction over a smartboard, or uploaded to google drive where you can share them digitally with your students.
✔ 7 printable labels with "I Can Statements".
✔ Creatively designed answer keys which match recording sheets for easy grading.
✔ Multiple versions of recording sheets. One version saves paper while the other version allows more room for showing work.
✔ A click and learn FAQ document which provides helpful answers to questions you might have about your set.
The Differentiation Advantage
This set of task cards has been organized in a way that allows for seamless differentiation. Cards #1-10 are the least difficult in each set and can be given to any students who might be struggling to gain confidence. Cards #11-20 are just slightly more challenging, while the last 10 questions require a bit more critical thinking being primarily long-form word problems.
Methodology - How We Designed the Problems
Each question is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) state standards, and are specifically designed to meet documented student expectations for that standard. The questions are patterned on previously released State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) Math Tests. The questions can be used for guided practice and independent practice.
*Careful attention has been put into each question so they won't be so challenging as to discourage your students, while still being rigorous enough to prepare your students for testing and assessment.

Included in this task card set are the following TEKS Standards:
TEKS Standard 3.7A:
The student is expected to represent fractions of halves, fourths, and eighths as distances from zero on a number line.
I can map fractions like one-half and one-quarter on a number line, which gives me a great way to see what a fraction really is - a part of a whole."
TEKS Standard 3.7B:
The student is expected to determine the perimeter of a polygon or a missing length when given perimeter and remaining side lengths in problems.
I can measure a polygon's perimeter by adding up the lengths of that shape's sides.
TEKS Standard 3.7C:
The student is expected to determine the solutions to problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes using pictorial models or tools such as a 15‐minute event plus a 30‐minute event equals 45 minutes.
I can combine my understanding of telling time with addition and subtraction to help plan out my day and understand how others manage their time.
TEKS Standard 3.7D:
The student is expected to determine when it is appropriate to use measurements of liquid volume (capacity) or weight.
I can understand when I need to measure something in units of liquid volume vs. measuring something in units of weight.
TEKS Standard 3.7E:
The student is expected to determine liquid volume (capacity) or weight using appropriate units and tools.
I can measure the amount of liquid in a cup or container using the appropriate units and tools necessary according to the situation.
TEKS Standard 3.8A:
The student is expected to summarize a data set with multiple categories using a frequency table, dot plot, pictograph, or bar graph with scaled intervals.
I can represent data in all sorts of neat, clearn and easy to understand graphs and tables.
TEKS Standard 3.8B:
The student is expected to solve one-and two-step problems using categorical data represented with a frequency table, dot plot, pictograph, or bar graph with scaled intervals
I can organize and summarize data in graphs and tables, then use the organized data to create equations which help me to understand the data and make use of it in real world situations.
