We can all agree how important it is for students to be able to read and comprehend informational text. I have tried to implement this in my classroom more this year, but I know I still need to do more. That's why I created these task cards.
I created 8 informational text passages. For each passage, I wrote 3 questions. These are not, "What color was the animal?" questions. These are questions that make the students think - go back into the text and prove their answers.
The topics on the cards are: * Rhino Problem * The Invention of Pepsi-Cola * Husky or Malamute * Niagara Falls State Park * Chewing Gum * Elvis Presley * Magnets * The Queen Bee
In this product, you will receive
* 8 sets of cards - each with 1 informational passage and 3 questions * two duplicate sets of cards - 1 without QR codes and one with QR codes * a note-taking sheet * a student answer sheet * an answer key
I really hope these cards make your students better text investigators!
I created this product to meet Common Core ELA standard RI.4.8. However, I believe this product is great for grades 3-6, whether or not you are doing Common Core.
