Developing Research Skills with Task Cards Activity

Developing Research Skills with Task Cards Activity

These 36 printable task cards are a terrific way to actively practise the IB PYP transdisciplinary skills needed for research and that we use continuously throughout inquiry based teaching. Covering data analysis, questioning, inferring, synthesising and much more, the task cards can be used in a variety of ways that encourage the children to reflect and think about the strategies for researching, with various scenarios and data that are easily relatable to them. As you help the children with these research skills in a safe, familiar environment, it will greatly benefit them throughout school and particularly as they approach the IB PYP Exhibition. A great review activity! Differentiated for 3rd-5th grade. The grey cards are more challenging text. UK and USA spelling. Suggestions: Whole class - sitting in circle, each child will have a card to read aloud and then share their opinion. These can be discussed as you go around the circle. Some of the picture cards could be shown on a document camera or overhead projector. Small groups- Place a pile of cards face down in the middle of the group. Each person will take a turn to read a card, act out, complete or offer their opinion and then those can be discussed within the group. Teacher led - working with a small group, you could select a few specific cards that target skills you are hoping to reinforce. Independent work - Each child can work with a few cards and write or draw how they would solve the research problems presented on the task cards. You will find 36 task cards ready to print and go. You can find more task cards for developing Social Skills and Self Management skills as well as many more tools for implementing the IB PYP within my store and on my blog. You may like my posters explaining the Transdisciplinary Skills . There are separate sets for big kids and also for younger kids. Enjoy! Susan Powers www.PYPteachingtools.com

Two AQA Language Paper 1 Practise Papers

Two AQA Language Paper 1 Practise Papers

Included are two complete practise papers for AQA English Language Paper 1. The two texts used for each Section A are 'The Help' and 'The Road'. The extract from 'The Help' is slightly too long -intentionally so - feel free to adapt it for your own class. The extract from 'The Road' is rather difficult but my middle set year 11 class found it rather intriguing to analyse.
