I had one person make the comment that these templates are only for elementary school. I can see how you might think that at first glance, seeing how there is a section devoted to Primary Templates and a lot of the Math Templates and Language Templates might seem geared toward lower grades, but there is a great deal of flexibility in these templates that I'd like to highlight for those of you who might be tempted to think that these can't be used in middle grades 5-8.
Starting with the Problem Box Templates, these can be used for any subject, literally. You put a piece of text, a picture, a word, or some task on a page, and have students fill in 4,5,6,8, or 10 boxes with answers. You grade. This works in ALL subjects at ALL grade levels. You could even do this in high school.
Matching Templates allow you to match pictures, words, and definitions to each other in different combinations. This, again, is a skill that even high school or college students have to do.
The Quiz Templates might be the most obvious templates to use for any grade or subject. Included in these you will find True or False, Multiple Choice, Task Completion, and Short Answer. These are great for pop quizzes in any topic, as well as for completion tasks like science labs, presentations, or writing papers.
Graphic Organizer Templates are also very versatile. You see students sorting by column, using box sorts, and even using Venn Diagrams in high school. Clever teachers can surely adapt these for their middle school classes.
While categories like Primary, Writing, Language, and Math might seem slanted toward the lower grades, don't forget that at least half of the categories and the templates are filled with versatile materials that you can use for any grade and subject.
