PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help students practice the skill of identifying independent (manipulated), dependent (responding), and controlled variables using these scenario-based task cards!

This activity includes 10 task cards for reinforcement of this important scientific method skill. Each task card includes a lab scenario for students to analyze and then identify the independent (manipulated), dependent (responding), and controlled variables for each scenario. Students will answer a total of 30 questions within this resource - 3 per task card.

How is this facilitated?
The 10 task cards can be set up at 10 different stations, one card per station. Students will work collaboratively with a partner to complete the task at each station. Students will write down their answers on the Student Answer Document and then receive instant feedback by checking their answers using either the QR Task Card Version or the Non-QR Task Card Version (both included in this resource). Once the time is up, the teacher will say "Scoot!" and the students will move to the next station.

• Using the QR Task Card Version:
→ Students can then scan the QR Code on the task card with a free QR Reader, which uses a camera on your laptop or device, to reveal the answer key for that particular task.

• Using the Non-QR Task Card Version:
→ Students can check the answer key at each station. The teacher may choose to place the printed answer key in a manila envelope or file folder.
