This set of task cards provides all you need for a full hour of fun. The activity is designed to have students work in groups and OUT OF THEIR SEATS! It contains 28 question cards and 4 Bonus cards (Kaboom, lose a turn, steal a card, & a bonus turn), a coordinating answer worksheet, and a solution key. My student are VERY competitive and LOVE playing with the Bonus cards as described below.
Option 1: Each team/group will work on one card and complete the appropriate section, then swap for a new one until all have been worked. Cards can be left 4 to a sheet or cut apart for this style of play.
Option 2: Cards must be cut apart as well as 1 or 2 sheets of the “Bonus” cards. All cards will be face down and when a student draws a card, he/she answers it. If all other players agree with the solution, the player keeps that card. If a Bonus card is drawn, the player follows the directions on that card. The player with the most cards at the end of the allotted time is the winner.
I have included two versions of the cards, one in grayscale, and the other in color, for a total of 56 cards. Either way, you will probably want to print a class set on cardstock and laminate them for future years.
Your students will be exposed to the many types of proportions problems, including one word problem at each station.
