Task cards are a fantastic way to reinforce lessons, review difficult concepts, or provide extra practice for the struggling student. The student reads each card, performs the task, and records his/her answer on the included student answer sheet.

From the moment of purchase, you will be ready to use your task cards in just a few minutes. Simply print the sheets of task cards on card stock paper, laminate, and cut the cards apart. The cards look best when printed in color, but they can easily be printed in black and white.

This set of 45 task cards on the scientific method will cover the following:

  • The student will list the steps of the scientific method.
  • The student will distinguish between quantitative and qualitative data.
  • The student will define the term “hypothesis” and will demonstrate the ability to write a suitable hypothesis for an experiment. Scenarios are given and students must write a suitable hypothesis.
  • The student will demonstrate an understanding of the term “controlled experiment.”
  • The student will distinguish between experimental and control groups in an experiment.
  • Given a lab experiment scenario, students will describe possible experimental groups and control groups.
  • The student will distinguish between independent and dependent variables. Many examples are given which ask the student to identify the independent and the dependent variables.
  • Given a lab experiment scenario, the student will list factors that must be kept constant in the experiment.
  • The student will look at a graph and form a conclusion based on the information on the graph.
  • The student will study the information in a data table and identify the independent and dependent variables, and form a conclusion.
  • Given a line graph, students will identify the independent and dependent variables, and use the graph to make predictions.
