Product Description
This resource contains 36 task cards for Rocks, Minerals, & Earth's Resources. The questions are aligned to the 4th grade Science standards:

SC.4.E.6.1 Identify the three categories of rocks. (Metamorphic, Sedimentary, & Igneous)
SC.4.E.6.2 Identify the physical properties of common earth-forming minerals.
SC.4.E.6.3 Recognize that humans need resources found on Earth and that these are either renewable or nonrenewable.
SC.4.E.6.4 Describe the basic differences between physical weathering and erosion.

The task cards can be used individually, in partnerships, small groups, or whole group. Each card has a question or fill in the blank statement. Most of the problems are multiple choice, but some are require students to fill in the blank using a vocabulary word.

This product includes…
*36 Task Cards
*Answer Sheet (2 pages for Front and Back)
*Answer Key with the Question and the Answer

Teacher Directions:
To use these in the classroom, you can print the cards in color or grayscale on cardstock or regular printer paper. I highly recommend laminating the cards so they can last longer for you. Copy an answer sheet for each student (front and back). Students will record the answer in each box. Then, you have options for how you want students to work with these task cards. I have tried several different ways using task cards.

*As a review before a test
*Put 4-5 task cards in different areas of the classroom or in student groups. Give students 7 minutes or so to answer the questions, then switch groups.
*Place cards in a bucket or basket and have students grab a few cards at a time when they finish another assignment.
*Review for 5th Grade Science Assessment

We hope you find success with these in your classroom! If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know! butterfliesanddaydreams1@gmail.com
