Reference Materials Matching Cards:
*Includes matching cards for Dictionary, Thesaurus, Almanac, Atlas, Periodical, and Encyclopedia
*Match definitions AND example cards for each
This is designed as a fun, tactile review for students to help them remember the different reference materials and their uses. I have students work individually or with a partner. You can take cards out if you are just focusing on some of the reference materials or if students are struggling with just certain ones.
So that students can do them independently (especially if they are using them at home), I number the back of the matching cards to allow them to check their matches when they are done.
You can copy the cards and laminate them for future use, including as station activity or when students finish work early. They can also be sent home with students for them to review with parents or on their own.
