Text Clue Scavenger Hunt Task Cards

As a teacher librarian I am alway looking for ways to support classroom teachers with their ELA programming. I designed this set with the library in mind, since that is where I work. You can easily use this in your classroom. The purpose of this scavenger hunt is to familiarize/support students in using text clues to determine the subject of a book.

This pack includes 24 scavenger hunt cards and a printable answer sheet allowing students to record up to twelve answers.

This is a print and go resource that can easily be used to help you gather data on your students and their ability to use text clues, before, during or after teaching. The cards can easily be adapted to use more one on one with struggling students, simply place several books in front of them and ask them to identify the book being described on the task card. If the student struggles with the text clue and chooses the wrong one, asking them why, will give you a bunch of information that you can use in helping that student better use text clues offered on covers, in pictures or in words.

At $2, this is a must have, easy to use resource!

FREE LESSON – “Social Studies Causation Cards”

The Owl Teacher

Grades 3-6

Causation Cards are the newest and next best thing since task cards!

FREE CAUSATION CARDS, Social Studies, Economics

What Are Causation Cards?

Causation cards are a fun, interactive way to review vocabulary and concepts that students need to learn. In addition, this engaging activity helps improve fluency and listening skills.

How Does Causation Cards Work?

The method is similar to the “I have… who has…” cards, where each student has to listen carefully to other students to know when it is their turn. However, causation cards do not contain a repeated language (like “I have… who has…”). Instead it will state an action that a student must perform and a statement they must say. The action can be something simple from jumping in the air to drawing on the board. The statement can be a definition of a term or related concept.

Why Are Causation Cards Important?
This activity is a great resource for practicing those all important speaking and listening skills while building fluency. This resource is a great way to improve student’s reading accuracy, prosody, and fluency rate.

How Do You Use Them In The Classroom?

Have the class read through the set of cards multiple times giving each student a different card each time or read to each other by taking turns.
