This file contains all of the vocabulary words for fifth grade science Essential Standards. It is a bundled pack, which includes all seven units.
This document has two parts; both parts contain the same key vocabulary for the science Essential Standards. The first part can be used in a variety of ways; as small flash cards with the word on the front and the definition on the back by folding the middle line and gluing both sides together or you could cut each card for a matching (key word and definition) game. The second part has the word and definition together and is printed much larger; this would best be used for a word wall or introduction of new vocabulary for the lesson.
This document contains 192 vocabulary words from all seven units. There is also a blank page of the small and large cards for you to create your own cards. Although this document is not editable, I will be glad to change the background to a different background color or remove the picture if you would like. Each strand has a different pastel color and shape to help students differentiate and classify key vocabulary learned throughout the year.
These vocabulary cards align very will with the Student Note Taking Booklets also found in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
