Texas teachers, I designed this word wall to give you the specific science academic vocabulary words that the students need to know from the Texas TEKS. In some categories, I also included some words from the TEKS from the grade level below that would be studied again and added upon.
The words have been broken down into 13 categories (listed below), and they are also color coded. The set includes: the category headings, the vocabulary words with definitions, an extra template to add more words if you would like to, and a color coded key to the word wall.
**Many of these academic vocabulary words are also used on the 5th grade science STAAR test.
-14 heading cards (13 categories & 1 alternative heading for adaptations)
-107 academic vocabulary word and definition cards
-blank vocabulary cards for each category
-a color coded key
(the headings and cards are all color coded to make it easier to learn)

I hope you enjoy this product,
