There are 24 reading passage task cards specifically addressing the key concepts of the Cattle Movement of the 1800s. These cards are utilized in three different ways to promote fluency within nonfiction texts and to enhance comprehension skills. Students have a recording sheet to use to answer questions (3 questions per card for a total of 72), generate their own questions, summarize important ideas, and review. You could use the task cards for three days and have each student to do all three recording sheets OR this could be differentiated based on specific reading skills that students need to practice. Students could even work in partners or complete it individually as an assessment. The possibilities are endless as we "double dip" across content areas and strengthen upper grades reading skills!
*Printer-friendly, no clipart distractions, perfect for B&W copies! (Also includes cards in a color version!)
