Looking for a fun way to integrate tech and bring learning to life for your students on the Properties of Matter? This vocabulary activity is not your everyday vocabulary activity- students scan the vocabulary terms which contain Augmented Reality that will bring up a video about the term. Lower-level students use the information in the videos to match the terms with the correct definition cards, while higher-level students match the terms and definitions first, and self-check using the videos. This activity is especially great for ELL or SpEd learners. For a quick tutorial on getting started with Augmented Reality, check out my video on How to Use My Augmented Reality Items
This activity includes 9 definition cards, 9 vocabulary term cards, and 1 recording sheet. Also includes a WIDA Expanded Strand to show how this activity can be differentiated and how ELLs at all levels will use academic language.
For those who don't wish to break out the technology, This activity can still be an engaging and meaningful way for students to practice, review or extend their knowledge of the Properties of Matter.

Set this up as a tech center for iPads, iPhones, or Android devices. Each device only needs the FREE Aurasma app.
Teacher Notes- Aurasma
Aurasma is a free app that allows you to bring learning to life with Augmented Reality. Simply download the app onto your iPad, iPhone, or android device or smartphone. Print up the cards, follow my channel, and bring in your device (or have students bring theirs)- no more prep is needed. Check out the instructions in the product or the video linked to above for instructions!
*Please note that laminating the cards often causes glare and the app will have trouble accessing the auras.
