Paint Sample Cards...

Here is another way to use paint sample cards in your classroom:

I took some of the larger cards and cut them in half.  At the end of learning about the periodic table, I handed each student a card and instructed them to write as many facts as they could in about 2-3 minutes.  I then had each student randomly tape their card to a piece of chart paper. Now we have a poster that we can use as a review for our state testing.  This is also a great formative assessment tool!  The teacher could look over the information posted on the cards and if there was an important concept not written about then she/he could do a little reteaching.
