Description

Setting Task Cards Digital Resource for Google Slides – 30 cards for practicing the story element of setting. Students use close reading and look for text based evidence to determine details of a story's setting. A good variety of activities makes these cards appealing to students and allows them to really understand the concept of setting and see how it adds to a story. Both the digital resource and a PDF version are included in this file.

Here are some of the activities included:

- identify the time, place, and duration from a passage

- list the clues to setting in a passage

- write a story based on a pictured setting

- answer setting questions

- recall stories read with particular types of settings

- infer the time and place from an image

- find settings on a map

- complete a setting chart

- identify the setting in news articles

All three elements of setting are addressed - place, time, and duration. Also, both fiction and non-fiction examples are included to give students practice using setting information to enhance reading comprehension with various types of readings.

This resource includes BOTH the digital slides with one card per slide and a PDF version with two cards per page for printing. The answer key will be found in the PDF, and there is also a list of suggestions for ways to use task cards and a list of ways to differentiate for students of differing abilities. Also included in the PDF is a blank answer sheet for students to use to write their responses.

This Google Slides version of the task cards is ready for student use with text boxes or movable pieces already in place for student responses.

The text in this resource is not editable.

These digital task cards are designed specifically for middle grade kids with more content per card than many task cards – perfect for older kids who can handle more than one quick question per card.

For the Easel Digital Version, see Setting Story Element Task Cards.

This resource addresses Common Core Reading Anchor Standards and the Reading: Literature Standards.
