Animal research is so much fun! However, lots of students can have trouble with the science vocabulary. Towards the end of the year my students will choose an animal and create a report for the animal they have chosen. As we begin studying their animals we use these picture vocabulary cards to help understand the text we are reading. I simply printed them in color, laminated them, and put magnets on the back so I can put them on the board. Once we're done they come off easily for storage. These are a great visual for students along with a simplified definition for young learners.
