Task Cards are all the rage in elementary classrooms—and rightfully so, both students AND teachers love them. They’re a fun (sneaky) way of getting students to answer questions that would normally be on boring, old worksheets! It’s time we bring them to the middle school classroom!
~24 multiple choice & short answer cards about the geography of Europe
~Set of blank cards to add your own questions
~Ideas for Use
Topics: physical features—characteristics and locations, language families—Slavic, Romance, & Germanic, monotheistic religions—Judaism, Christianity, & Islam, & environmental concerns--air pollution in UK, Chernobyl, & acid rain in Germany.
Task Cards can be used in many different ways:
-With a partner or small group (give a certain amount of time until they have to pass the questions on)
-Have students write the answers on the back and play “Memory”
-In a scavenger hunt (give students the answers and hide the questions around the room)
-For students who finish early
-Individually, to review for tests
-When you have a few minutes to spare before the bell rings…
*These task cards were designed to fit Georgia Performance Standards for 6th grade social studies. I am working on task cards for all of the GPS, so be sure to check back soon!
