Description

This set of task cards is a 12-card sampler. Each card presents a reading passage related to the theme of "mysteries." Some are fiction, and some are non-fiction.

Here is what is included:

Fiction – 4 Cards

- Making Inferences

- Identifying the Sequence

Non-Fiction – 4 Cards

- History

- Science

Using Context Clues – 2 Cards

Editing – 2 Cards

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. The cards are large – two cards per page and have more content per card than many of the smaller task cards –perfect for older kids who can handle more than one quick question per card.

Included with this set is a blank answer sheet for students to fill in their answers.

Also included is a list of suggestions for ways to use task cards and a list of suggestions for easy differentiation with task cards.

The Easel Activity is a digital version that is ready to use with one card per slide. It is ready for student use with answer boxes and directions already in place.

For the Google Slides version, see Mysteries - Task Cards and Google Slides.

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.
