FREE SCIENCE LESSON - “Boom Cards | Metric Units and Prefixes | Distance Learning”

by Amy Brown Science
5th - 8th Grade

Ready to go "digital" by using Boom Cards™ in your classroom? This FREE download provides you with a set of 50 digital task cards on metric units and metric prefixes. In addition, this resource includes my teacher guide to Boom Cards™ and Boom Learning℠ to provide you with all the information you need to learn what Boom Cards are, how you can use them in your classroom, and how to set up your Boom account.

What Are Boom Cards?

In a nutshell, Boom Cards are digital task cards. You would use them the same way you use traditional task cards, only these cards are viewed on digital devices such as interactive whiteboards, desktops, laptops, netbooks, Chromebooks, iPads, iPhones, Android tablets and phones, and Kindle-Fire tablets. It’s all digital!! No more printing, cutting, and laminating cards. Can you say time-saver? Just assign a Boom deck to your students and you are ready to go.

I am excited that Boom Learning and Teachers Pay Teachers have given the green light to list Boom Cards in our TpT stores. Be sure to look for the “Boom Cards” category in my TpT store.

Highlights of Boom Cards include:

  • Digital Task Cards
  • Self-Grading
  • Provides reports on student progress and activity.
  • No more printing, laminating and cutting task cards!
  • Easy to differentiate: Assign different decks to different students.
  • Students can work at their own pace.
  • Perfect for 1:1 classrooms.
  • Great for Homework: Students can access and complete at home!
  • Students receive immediate feedback, and teachers receive a report of student progress.
  • Use the same way you would use any task cards: Independent work, group work, competitive game formats, homework, quiz or test prep.

  • These digital task cards are played on the Boom Learning site. They are not downloaded to your computer. When you download this resource you are provided with a link to your new set of Boom Cards. Clicking the link will take you to Boom Learning where you will either: (1) Create a new account to get started, or (2) Sign in to an existing account for immediately access to your Boom cards.
  • Boom cards are not editable. There is a "Hide Card" feature that allows you to select which cards are seen by your students. By using the "Hide Card" feature you can eliminate questions not suitable for your class.

Boom Learning and Teachers Pay Teachers

Any set of Boom Cards purchased on TpT allows you to forever play the Boom Cards using Fast Play. Fast Play does not save student progress reports but does provide you and your students unlimited and lifetime play of the decks you purchase from TpT.

From Boom Learning: “With your Teachers Pay Teachers purchase, users new to Boom Learning get a three-month free trial of student progress reporting for up to 150 students. Your trial includes the ability to make up to 5 free DIY decks. You may upgrade or cancel at any time. When you redeem your purchase, Boom Learning opens an account for you if you do not already have one. If you do not subscribe at the end of your trial, you will be able to continue using Boom Cards with the Fast Play feature. Fast Play does not track individual progress."

There are four levels of Boom memberships: There is one free level and 3 levels of paid subscriptions. All three levels of paid memberships are currently $25 or less per year.

Remember, at the end of the free period, it is NOT required that you purchase a Boom membership. You will continue to be able to use all decks that you have purchased in the “Fast-Play” mode.
