PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This alien/space themed packet is designed to help students learn to use context clues to figure the meaning of unfamiliar vocabulary. Students play the role of an astronaut exploring a new planet. They encounter aliens who speak a language similar to English, but with some very different words. The "Context Clues Multiple Choice Cards" contain 4 short stories/page (20 stories total, provided in black and white and color versions). Each story contains a nonsense-word from the "alien language." Students need to figure out (based on the context of the story) the meaning of the alien word.

Contents:
p. 3-7: Context Clues Multiple Choice Cards (color version)
p. 8-12: Context Clues Multiple Choice Cards (black & white version)
p. 13-15: Dictionary Activity (create a dictionary using the alien words you learned from the short stories)
p. 16: Word Match Activity (Match the alien word to its English equivalent)
p. 17-18: Silly Sentences (Generate sentences using specified alien words)
p. 19: Category Sort (sort the alien words into categories: sports, colors, school subjects, etc.)
p. 20-21: What’s Your Alien Name Direction Sheet & Worksheet (Use the cyper to generate an alien name)

Your activity is so cute! I love it! As a Title I teacher and working with 2nd through 5th graders in small groups, I cannot wait to do this with all of my students. Our school is exceptionally low, and typically the student motivation is even lower. Finding an activity like this is perfect because the students become so excited and engaged - which is incredibly challenging to achieve with our students. Thank you!
