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.

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.
