These task cards contain higher order thinking comprehension questions from Elisa Carbone’s novel, Blood on the River. This novel is one of the best tools I've found for teaching students about Jamestown and the relationship between the Powhatan Indians and the English settlers. These cards emphasize the main points I want students to understand from the social studies as well as the reading comprehension standpoints. The forty-eight discussion cards have several questions from each chapter. These may be used for small or large group discussion, entry or exit tickets, or writing prompts. The four R.A.F.T. cards at the end have writing prompts to promote higher order thinking. All cards are designed to be cut out and can also be used in literacy centers. Additionally, you will have chapter-by-chapter HOT questions to add into your lesson plans as you write out your unit for this exciting novel. Happy Teaching!
