Want to take reading to a whole new level in your ELA classroom? Why not integrate STEAM activities to enhance learning! The task cards in this resource include performance tasks that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. After reading a selection, students can choose from a variety of tasks increasing their interest and providing a different outlet for learning and application.
(NOTE: The technology tasks do not require specific devices or programs. The tasks are based on technology concepts.)
Included in This Resource:
-20 Task Cards (4 for each STEAM area)
- A Choice Board for easier access to the tasks. I have found the Choice Board easier for some of my students to handle. I put a copy of the choice board in a plastic sheet in their Interactive Reading Notebooks. The choice board prints out on a regular 8.5x11 sheet of paper and contains the same exact tasks on the task cards, just in a different format. You could even use it as a bingo game.
These tasks can be used in conjunction with any story or passage you read in class. These have proved especially beneficial for my enhanced/gifted students.
