About this Bundle:
This bundle includes four mini task card sets - a total of 152 task cards - that can be used to study, assess or review important science, lab and engineering skills important to EVERY science classroom. The concepts, skills and practices are aligned with NGSS and most state standards. More importantly, these task cards get your students behaving and thinking like REAL scientists

NGSS Alignment:
The concepts and skills addressed in this product align with the NGSS Nature of Science eight major themes. This product addresses themes that extend the science and engineering practices and cross-cutting concepts across grades 3-5 and 6-8. These practices are outlined in Appendix F and H at http://www.nextgenscience.org/get-to-know.

About the Differentiation & Tiering:
This product is differentiated for upper elementary and/or middle school students. A color-shape code is found on the lower right corner of every task card to help you differentiate concepts for your students' needs and abilities. Concepts are differentiated as basic, intermediate or advanced.

Each card is denoted with a "signal strength" to code for lower, mid and higher order thinking:
• Cards with a “low” signal strength assess students on knowledge and comprehension.
• Cards with a “medium” signal strength assess students on application and analysis.
• Cards with a “high” signal strength assess students on synthesis and evaluation.

These task cards are great for:
✓ Science centers
✓ Assessment
✓ Independent Study
✓ Review
