Eight task cards in the themes of love and friendship. There are five picture task cards and three text task cards. For differentiation, I have more advanced students answer all the questions and lower level students answer only one or two. All students have to justify their answers. I emphasize that there can be more than one correct way to answer; being correct is less important than being able to justify an opinion.
Two of the text-based cards are classic love poems. The other is a fictional account of Charles d'Orlean writing a valentine to his wife while in English captivity.
There are four cards per sheet.
I've used these cards with 5th and 6th grade students.
