I created this package to assist in helping students understand the scientific vocabulary associated with biological evolution and heredity in a life sciences study. With Next Generation Science and the Common Core Standards, there is a great deal of emphasis on academic vocabulary, but not enough resources available to ensure student achievement. Including academic vocabulary stations for math, science, and social studies has greatly improved student achievement in my classroom, especially for my English Language Learners.
Included in this package you will find 30 biological evolution vocabulary cards with definitions, a vocabulary packet cover page, 2 templates for recording vocabulary words, definitions, and illustrations, 30 biological evolution task cards (to be laminated, cut, and placed on a ring or in a baggie) with a recording sheet, and 3 biological evolution academic vocabulary assessments with answer keys. This set of academic vocabulary aligns with Next Generation Science Life Science Standards 3.LS3: Heredity and 3.LS4: Biological Evolution.
These activities can be implemented at a word work center, a science vocabulary station, and/or as homework. Students can play together and study independently.
