Government can be such a difficult concept for young learners to grasp! Help make it easier and "double dip" across content areas with these reading fluency and comprehension task cards about our nation's government!
Need another activity to prepare for GA Milestones or your state's test that isn't a worksheet? There are twenty-four reading passage task cards specifically addressing the key concepts of the Government. 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.
*Printer-friendly, no clipart distractions, perfect for B&W copies! (Also includes a color version!)
*Addresses Georgia Fourth Grade Social Studies standards but -not- specific and can be used for any state.
