    Please note this is a combination package. Each part may be purchased separately.

    This Terrific set will save you time and a little bit of money--- two things all teachers need! It’s a combo package of a nonfiction text features task card set and a word wall and vocabulary set with the topic Rocks, Minerals, and Volcanoes.

    Set 1: Rocks, Minerals, and Volcanoes Nonfiction Task Cards

    This task card set of 54 cards addresses many things: non-fiction text features, non-fiction reading, and applying what has been learned.

    • Students read non-fiction passages about rocks, minerals, and volcanoes and use text features to complete task cards. The reading passages are designed to resemble magazine pages with colorful photos, clipart, and sections.
    • The task cards are also color-coded. The task cards include multiple choice answers and open-ended challenges.
    • The cards include: determining the type of nonfiction text feature in the article (these are blue), basic comprehension questions (these are green), and open-ended cards (these are purple).
    • The open-ended tasks use nonfiction text features! Open-ended tasks include: writing sentences; writing paragraphs; creating tables and charts; drawing and labeling; drawing timelines; comparing with charts, tables, or Venn diagrams; creating a mini glossary; and writing descriptions.

    For your convenience, this package also includes a complete set with limited color. The multiple-choice questions are also included in a worksheet format. An answer sheet is included with an answer key.

    This task card package specifically includes:

    Cover, Background, Table of Contents, 3 pages of Reading Selections, Task Cards 1-18 Multiple Choice (Blue), Task Cards 19-36- Multiple Choice (Green), Task Cards 37-54- Open-Ended (Purple), Ink Saver Pages, Answer Sheet, Answer Keys, Worksheet set, and Common Core Standards sheet.
