Photosynthesis Task Cards in PowerPoint format PLUS a PowerPoint Review
with all the answers to share with your students! Print and laminate the cards in the size of your choice (1, 2, or 4 per page) in color or black & white to use as traditional task cards. Or, present the cards one at a time, or a few at a time, from the PowerPoint to the whole class. You can even use the PPT as a quiz! I like to use the Task Cards throughout a topic of study and then use the PPT Review on the day before the test. Designed for a high school biology class.

Task Cards are great formative assessments, but they can be implemented in many different ways. Here are a few ideas:
1. Bell Work or Early Finishers
– Students can grab a card to answer when they first walk into class or any time they finish work early.
– Sort of a Think, Pair, Share activity. Pairs of students work together on two cards – answer one card, swap, answer the second card, then share answers.
3. Use one card as a “Question of the Day”
for all students to answer, then discuss as a class.
– Post cards in various places around the room or at lab stations and let students rotate through the stations as they work on them.
5. Exit Pass
– Check for understanding as students answer a particular card before they leave class.
6. Review Game Race
– I’ve used this one many times! If your students are seated in rows, pass a stack of cards out, face down, to the first person on each row. Say Go! Each student must choose one card to answer and then pass the remaining cards back to the next student. The first row to answer their questions correctly WINS!
7. Flash Cards
– Print question cards back-to-back with the answer cards from the PowerPoint Review.
