Product Description
These are the task cards (8 sets) I created to go along with each science unit I teach during the year! These could be used as individual practice, an assessment, a group activity, homework, or for an early finisher. I have also created a bundle with all of my science and social studies task cards, and each set is sold individually. While these were created with fourth grade in mind, various grades could use these. My students love these!


Water Cycle/Weather Task Cards

These multiple choice task cards will take students through what they need to know on the water cycle and weather for fourth grade. They could be modified for other grade levels as well and used as enrichment and remediation. In my classroom, I have three copies laminated, cut out, and placed on rings for my students to use during their free time as an independent (or group ) review.
Included:
Weather Instruments
High/Low Pressure
Warm/Cold Front
Boiling/Freezing Point
Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation, Collection
