I know this sounds crazy, but I love to teach analogies. So I have been creating sets of analogy task cards. I’ve used them in my classroom a few different ways. Such as:
Walk About: I tape each task card to a different area in the classroom. I then split the class into pairs. Each pair spends one minute at each task card. On their sheet of paper they write the answer and then write why they believe it is the answer. After each group has gone to each task card, students then take turns reading and explaining each task card.
Centers: I have used these task cards in both a teacher led or student center. Students are required to answer and to explain why they answer what on each card.
Independent work: I have also used these cards for my early finishers.

As a sixth grade teacher, my students must learn four of the persuasive techniques used in advertisements. They must know bandwagon, name calling, testimonial, and loaded words. There are not that many resources available out there. So, I created a center for my students. Students will have the four header cards and seven persuasive technique cards. Students will work together to place each example under the heading. For more in-depth learning students can identify the words that helped them identify the persuasive technique. I also provided an answer sheet. Click here for the free center! I hope you enjoy.
