This set of Task Card Mysteries includes ten printable task cards plus a smaller set of digital task cards on Easel. 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 in the printable version:

Making Inferences - 2 Cards

Identifying the Sequence - 2

Non-Fiction – 2 Cards

Using Context Clues – 2 Cards

Editing – 2 Cards

The Easel version includes 6 cards:

Making Inferences - 1 Card

Identifying the Sequence - 1 Card

Non-Fiction – 1 Card

Using Context Clues – 2 Cards

Editing – 1 Card

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.

Included with this set is a list of suggestions for ways to use task cards and a list of suggestions for easy differentiation.

The Easel Activity is a digital version 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-size task card sets, check out some of these ideas (or check them all out in the Task Cards section of this store). Each of the task card sets is available with either the Easel or the Google slides digital version.
