Science Task Boxes – set 1 (for grades 3 – 5)

Are you tired of boring worksheets? Looking for something new? Here are 16 Science task boxes that can be used in small groups, independent centers, one on one instruction, and take-home boxes for homework for that extra needed practice!! These task boxes, or task cards, help promote independent learning skills for early learners, gifted 3-5 students, ELL students, and Special needs or SPED teachers. These are targeted toward 3rd to 5th-grade reading levels.

I have been asked repeatedly to create more higher-level task boxes for academic support. After months of researching and creating, they are finally here!

This resource can be used all school year. I have created these specifically with special needs students in mind, to provide proprioceptive feedback while learning new skills. These task boxes are fun and engaging and keep kids wanting to learn and practice skills over and over again. Each task is made to fit perfectly in a small photo box or a crayon storage box. There are enough in this resource to fill one 16-container photo box. I purchased mine at Michaels.
