How can I use task cards?

✏️ You can use these task cards the traditional way by hanging them up around your room and having students travel around, reading and recording their answers. 

✏️ You can use them for a conflict sort as a station or group activity. Students read and sort the cards into conflict categories. 

✏️ You can use them Quiz-Quiz Trade style.

✏️ You can use them as an exit ticket where each student gets one card and has to identify the conflict and explain their answer. 

The possibilities are endless!
