Soils is one huge unit! In a crunch to fit in some science? Try these soil task cards during your literacy block! This activity would be great to introduce the unit but is generic enough to use whenever! Help make it easier and "double dip" across content areas with these reading fluency and comprehension task cards about soils.
Soil Reading Fluency Task Cards Topics Included:
✸layers of soil
*and much more!
Need another activity to prepare for GA Milestones or your state's test that isn't a worksheet? There are twenty four reading passage task cards specifically addressing the key concepts of soil. These cards are utilized in three different ways to promote fluency within nonfiction texts and to enhance comprehension skills. Students have a recording sheet to use to answer questions (3 questions per card for a total of 72), generate their own questions, summarize important ideas, and review. You could use the task cards for three days and have each student to do all three recording sheets OR this could be differentiated based on specific reading skills that students need to practice. Students could even work in partners or complete it individually as an assessment. The possibilities are endless as we "double dip" across content areas and strengthen upper grades reading skills!
*Printer friendly, no clipart distractions, perfect for B&W copies! (Also includes cards in a color version!)
