Special features of TASK CARDS WITH A TWIST: LEPRECHAUN CHASE MULTIPLICATION:
♣ Task cards with QR codes link to the correct answer for the given card question as well as a letter clue for solving the jokes/riddles at the bottom of the student response sheets. QR codes also reveal a sneaky leprechaun appearing and disappearing from the screen using various animations and related text. Most links will show this leprechaun getting away, sometimes leaving images in his path (e.g., rainbows, shamrocks, coins). However, one code on each response sheet will ‘capture’ the leprechaun. He then appears in each of the remaining QR code links for that sheet. To use the task cards with QR codes, students will need to have access to a device with a QR code reader.
♣ If you are not able or choose not to use QR codes, Student Answer Keys may be used for students to check their answers and obtain clues for solving the jokes/riddles. The animations cannot be viewed without a QR code reader, but this design option allows your kids to use ‘Task Cards with a Twist’ even if they do not have this technology.
♣ Teacher Answer Keys include all correct responses for task cards as well as the answers to the jokes/riddles and the location of each sneaky leprechaun.
♣ Student Response Sheets are divided into questions 1-12 and 13-24, allowing you to print one-sided or two-sided. Play one full game with all 24 task cards, or double the fun by splitting the cards into two games of 12 cards each!
♣ Dashed line guides are provided for easy symmetrical trimming of cards.
♣ Colored cards are fun, but sometimes you need black and white. Have you ever tried to print a colored document in grayscale, but it looks a bit blurry and not quite right? This product comes in both color and true blackline for clear, low-ink printing!
♣ To save you time, a quick printing chart is included. Choose your design option, print the designated pages from the chart and GO!
