This PowerPoint presentation will guide students through using context clues to determine the meaning of unknown words. The MAP DesCartes tool was used to create this instructional tool.
Words include: century, globe, position, scrumptious, astounded, seasons, occupied, aunt, scattered, brilliant, picnic, position, and others, as well as two nonsense words. The students will use word clues to determine the meaning of the word, then be given a picture clue and a definition. Finally, the students will end the activity by playing a context clues game to determine the meaning of unknown words using a series of context clues.
