How to Use Role Cards for Group Work
Print enough sets of the role cards for each group to have one complete set. Cut them out and store each set in an envelope or plastic pouch. When students work in groups on a science experiment, give them a set of role cards and have them decide which group member will be assigned each position. Students place their role cards in front of them as a reminder of their duties and let you know who is responsible for each role.
