This bundle includes the nonfiction Panda Task Cards, The Magic Tree House A Perfect Time for Pandas Novel Unit, Panda Perimeter task cards, Panda Area task cards, and Task cards that include both perimeter and area!
The Nonfiction Panda task card set has 24 question cards, 24 QR research cards, 24 QR answer cards, 1 recording sheet, and an answer key. The QR research codes in this set, do NOT give the answers straight out. Students will need to read the information to locate the answers. Many of the websites include adorable photos and videos you kids will love! I love that not only do my students locate all of the answers but they learn so much more. I hang a poster page and let the kids list other facts they learn that are not on the cards. The QR answer cards will give the students the answer with no web links.
QR codes can be read with any smart device and a QR code reader app. We use ipads and android tablets.
I have also included a list of useful websites.

Practice perimeter with the panda themed task card set.
Practice area with the area task card set
Finally, practice area and perimeter with the perimeter&Area task card set. Each card asks for perimeter and area of the same shape. Perfect for students that are ready to practice area and perimeter together!
I use these in a couple of ways, I put them in centers for students to do on their own or I put them up for a 'Gallery walk.' Gallery walk is when I hang up the cards all over the room (I've even hung them along our hallway). When students finish work, they may grab their recording sheet and a clipboard. They then get to walk around and answer the cards. We talk about how galleries are always very quiet and people don't crowd or bother other viewers. They are seriously so crazy quiet when they do this! When I use this as 'extra' work, I have students turn them in and after I check them over, I put the names of those that got hundreds in a bowl and pull one or two out for a prize. Sometimes, I put every name in that finished and perfect scores get their name in twice!
You will receive 16 task cards, a recording sheet, and answer key.
