This Changing Earth vocabulary and picture match is a wonderful cooperative learning activity when learning about the effects of how earth is constantly changing (landforms, weathering, erosion, deposition, etc.) This is great for comparing and contrasting landforms and the causes.
It was created for a 5th grade classroom in Utah but works for any Changing Earth unit. Copy either the color or black and white cards and cut. Make copies of the differentiated recording sheet per child (easier and harder versions.) Recording sheet #1 is easier where only the definition needs to be matched with the correct picture. Recording sheet #2 is more challenging where BOTH the picture and letter of the definition need to be identified. Students can work independently or in groups to match the picture with the correct definition. This is perfect for science centers. The words are: volcano, butte, plateau, freeze thaw, mountain, valley, canyon, acid rain, delta, sand dunes, glacier, arch, lichen, earthquake, craters, oxidation, abrasion, fault line, uplift, landslide. This is awesome for second-language/ SpEd students. Cards are in color AND black/ white versions, although I recommend color for the pictures.
