Task Cards – Mysteries Digital Resource for Google Slides – this set of task cards is a 6-card sampler. Each card presents a reading passage related to the theme of "mysteries." Some are fiction, and some are non-fiction.

Non-Fiction – 2 Cards

- History

- Science

Using Context Clues – 1 Card

Editing – 1 Card

This resource includes just the digital slides with one card per slide and a separate answer key.

Full sets of digital task cards will also include a PDF version of the task cards with two cards per page for easier printing, plus a list of suggested ways to use task cards and suggestions for differentiating with task cards for students of differing abilities.

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.

The reading passages were written with middle grade kids in mind. The assignments that go along with the reading passages consist of either several comprehension questions or another comprehension or editing activity.

These cards support the ELA standards for reading literature and informational test, especially those that relate to comprehension of story elements, making inferences, and using text-based information.

These 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 full sets of 30 task cards on topics including characterization, context clues, inferences, proofreading, parts of speech, analogies, idioms, and proverbs, as well as sets of seasonal reading comprehension cards, see Task Cards.
