No bones about it! Skeletons are fascinating to kids! This is for those students that prefer nonfiction reading! This terrific set of 64 Task Cards will address many things: nonfiction text features, informational reading, and applying what has been learned. Your students will love this set of articles and task cards!

Note: This set may be purchased in a money-saving bundle!

Students read nonfiction passages about the skeleton and bones and use text features to complete task cards. The reading passages are designed to resemble magazine pages with colorful photos, clipart, and sections.

The set of 64 task cards has many unique features:

  • Multiple choice cards include: determining the type of nonfiction text feature in the article, determining the purpose of the nonfiction text feature, and basic comprehension questions.
  • The open-ended tasks use nonfiction text features! These are identified with bold print. Open-ended tasks include drawing and labeling; designing tables; making new task cards; making a mini-glossary; creating an index; and creating a graph. Several of the task cards may require additional research.
  • The brightly colored backgrounds for the task cards are color-coded: orange for multiple-choice cards concerning text features, green for multiple-choice cards concerning comprehension questions, and pink for open-ended tasks.
  • The card frames are black and white to help with printing. For your convenience, a complete set of the reading selections and task cards with limited color is included to save on printing costs!
  • Answer sheets and an answer key are included. This includes the open-ended task cards.
