PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These are the task cards I created to go along with each social studies 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!

Here is what is included.

Native American Task Cards
These are task cards I created to use to check for mastery with our Native American unit. These are designed with 4th grade in mind, but they could be used in other grades are remediation, pre-teaching, or extension. Each is open ended to ensure they are not just guessing the answer and not really taking the time to think about and apply what they know. I included a blank answer sheet students could use to record their thoughts. It is large enough to allow for the short answer. I have my students use notebook paper to save on copies, but the option is there! You can copy the answer sheets front to back.
