When looking at a task card, the student will need to be caught up on their vocabulary words, as each card contains a definition. The task cards can be used in a variety of ways. You can hang them up in your classroom as is or in hallways for kids to explore. They can be printed multiple to a page, to be used at the start of the class as a warmup, as well. Some of the cards have a QR code, so that the students can quiz themselves and then check their answers on their device or you can use the attached answer key. I have attached 4 sets of the definitions so that you can use the set that fits your needs. (Multiple Choice & QR Code, just multiple choice, just QR Code and then one with just the definition.)
