Brainstorming Task Cards

PDF, Google Slides | 8 pages|Grades: 3 - 6

A set of 24 task cards to practice the brainstorming techniques of drawing a picture, creating a mind map, and making a list.

Are you tired of hearing the phrase, “But I don’t have anything to write about”? Then this is definitely the resource for YOU!

Use these task cards to practice the brainstorming techniques of drawing a picture, creating a mind map, and making a list. Print out the task cards on cardstock and cut them out along the dotted lines. Store in a resealable bag to be used over and over, year after year.

These task cards can be used in a variety of ways and completed individually, in small groups, or as a whole class! We have included a few ideas of our own in the download!

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the PDF or Google slides version.
