Following the success of my Winter Olympic task cards, I created this set of Summer Olympic task cards. The cards use information about the Olympic SPORTS and are not specific to any particular year. There product was designed for easy differentiation to meet student needs in your classroom.
In this package you will get 28 task cards, one card for each of the 28 Summer Olympic sport categories. Not every event is represented but each main sport is represented.
The first set of cards has a short paragraph with either the main idea or a detail underlined. Students determine which feature is underlined and circle the answer on the provided answer form.
The second set of cards has the identical information without the underlined feature. For students ready for more of a challenge, they will be asked to identify the main idea or a detail and write it on the provided answer form.
There is also a page of "medal" certificates you can award students based on their scores after completing one full set of task cards.
Answer keys are provided for both sets of cards.
