Using context clues to identify unknown words is a critical skill. As students are assessed on state assessments, they will undoubtedly discover words that they do not know.
On these pages, I have identified words which have meanings strongly indicated in the main selection.
The students will complete the chart, by writing the context clues they find, and their guess at what the word means by using the clues. Then, they will use a source to look up the actual definition of the word.
