November Task Card Centers include 7 engaging Learning Centers across all subject areas: math, science, social studies, language arts, writing, art, and technology.
Different options for setting up and effectively using and monitoring centers in the classroom are provided with the Using Center guide. There are also center labels for each subject (see preview) and a center checklist to monitor student completion. Task cards for each center provide student-friendly directions and a material list for teachers. Materials and set-up are minimal.
Students will enjoy exploring the following centers:
Math: Native American Measurement - Students will use different parts of their body to measure objects around the room and will record in the Native American Measurement Worksheet.
Science: Feather Frenzy - Students will explore feathers under a microscope or with a magnifying glass and make observations about how birds fly, what other important things feathers do for birds, and how oil spills effect birds. They will record their data in the Feather Frenzy Worksheet.
