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!
-28 multiple choice cards about Political Systems
-Ideas for use
-Blank cards for more questions
Topics: Autocracy, Oligarchy, Democracy, Federal, Unitary, Confederation, Presidential Democracy, Parliamentary Democracy
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!
