READING CARDS for Science
***No prep for the teacher, fully ready to use! Just print and go!***
Finally, a reading comprehension activity for high school SCIENCE courses. This can be used at any point throughout the year.
Organize students to work in collaborative groups or make multiple copies for individual work.
I highly recommend printing the reading cards on colored paper, laminating them, and allowing students to work in groups of 2 or 3.
Each card includes a reading passage that relates to one or more branches of science. There are two follow-up pieces; reading analysis made up of comprehension questions and research topics with a summary to allow for deeper investigation of the topic or stemming topics. For the research portion, students can use their phones or a school computer. They get to choose the topic they are most interested in from several research question prompts.
I've included a generic answer sheet to be used with any of the reading passages. This sheet will help keep students organized and completing each part of the assignment.
The topics for each passage involve some of the following:
-Cutting edge discoveries
-Current real-world issues
-Genetically modified cats
-rising sea level
and other thought provoking and controversial topics. It's ok to get kids talking about relevant issues.
These can be used for sub plans, between units, on odd schedule days, such as pep rally or testing schedules.
