This pack includes 24 vocabulary cards with pictures and definitions for the 8th grade unit on atoms and the periodic table. In my class, I print the cards in color and put them on a binder ring for each student. I have the kids number them so I can easily reference a card, or say, “quiz tomorrow on cards 1-10!” If you don’t have access to color printing, you could also choose to print each unit on a different color of printer paper to easily differentiate the cards.
Activities to do with the cards:
Have students draw their own picture on the back of the card.
Have bilingual students write the definition in their own language on the back of the card.
Vocab card races – call out a definition and have students race to find the correct card (if students know the definition, they can find the cards faster).
Please let me know if you have any feedback, suggestions, or questions. Enjoy!
