These task cards are designed specifically for middle grade kids. The cards are large - two cards per page and have more content per card than many of the smaller task cards - perfect for older kids who can handle a little more reading per card.

Included with this set is a blank answer sheet for students to fill in their answers.

These cards are great for differentiation in centers and stations are also great for partner work and whole class games. Included with the set is a list of suggestions for ways to use task cards as well as a list of suggestions for easy differentiation with task cards.

Using these cards supports the ELA standards for reading literature and informational test, especially those standards that relate to comprehension of story elements, making inferences, and using text-based information.
