Task Card Review Activity - How to utilize them more effectively in your classroom

Task CardsNot too long ago I had no idea what a task card was or how it could effectively be utilized in the classroom.  I did some research and what I found was that task cards were simply worksheets, broken down into individual questions posted onto cue cards and I wasn't really that impressed.  I started thinking about what I could do to make task cards into an engaging, high energy review game. Since then I've started amassing a diverse supply of activities which are listed below. Elementary Mathematics: Area and Perimeter of Polygons Word Problems Converting between Decimals, Fractions and Percentages Decimals - Four Basic Operations Multiplication and Division Word Problems Fractions High School Mathematics: Solving Quadratic Equations Polynomials - Binomials and Trinomials System of Linear Equations Measurement of 3D Objects Science: Space - The Study of the Universe Biology: Cells and Body Systems Chemistry - Atoms, Compound Naming and Chemical Reactions


These Task Card resources are unique. They can be utilized in a clue gathering, puzzle solving, highly active and engaging activity and/or as an alternative to worksheet review in an individual or group setting.
These activities are 45 minutes of high energy, competitive engagement that sneaks in a lot of review even for those students who are usually against such things. Task Cards
