Let's make those wintery days full of fun and learning! Grab this Winter Sports task card set that features a magazine-style format with text features and comprehension questions. The highly engaging articles are all about winter sports - unusual sports, ice sports, and skiing.

Note: This set is available in a money-saving bundle!

This package contains four pages of nonfiction reading selections designed to resemble magazine or newspaper pages. The features used in this resource include articles, bold print, bullets, captions, close-ups, fact boxes, glossary, illustration, italics, label, map, photo, pronunciation, subtitle, and title. The magazine articles are about unusual sports, ice boating, ice biking, ice fishing, curling, figure skating, speed skating, hockey, skiing, chair lifts, and more!

The set of 60 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 creating a table of contents, making a glossary, drawing and labeling a ski chair lift system, and designing a table showcasing athletes.
  • The brightly colored backgrounds for the task cards are color-coded: diagonals for multiple-choice cards concerning text features, hatched lines for multiple-choice cards concerning comprehension questions, and dots 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.
  • Sample answers are included for the open-ended task cards.

This package specifically includes:

  • Background page
  • Table of Contents
  • Four pages of magazine/newspaper articles about sharks
  • A set of 60 task cards in bright colors
  • The complete set in black and white
