Fun and challenging, TASK CARDS combined with QR Codes provide a way for 5-9th grade students to apply their knowledge of text structures with relevancy.
These codes are linked to kid-friendly HIGH INTEREST news articles online. Students match each article to one of the main text structures: description, sequence, chronological, cause/effect, problem/solution, compare/contrast, and persuasive.
Use as a literacy station activity, partner work, practice worksheet or even assessment. Laminate these 24 fascinating cards for lessons that will endure for years to come.
All you will need is a device that can scan QR Codes, such as a smartphone. Other suitable devices to use: iPod Touch, android or iPhone, iPad, tablet, or laptop/desktop with a camera.
