Product Description
This resource is perfect for 6th grade Earth Science - Plate Boundaries, Plate Tectonics, & Earth Layers.
It is also a great resource for ESOL academic language support.

It includes 27 cards vocabulary taboo cards. Each card has a vocabulary term and 4 related words below it. For example, 1 card has "inner core" at the top. Below it, you have "liquid" "iron" "dense" and "hottest".

Students will play in pairs or small groups. 1 student will be looking at the card. They are trying to get the other student to say the word at the top, "inner core", without using any of the words below, or "liquid" "iron" "dense" and "hottest".

It is also a good way for students to learn vocabulary as the 4 words are all related to the main vocabulary term.

The vocabulary words (words at the top) are: crust, mantle, outer core, inner core, asthenosphere, lithosphere, seismic waves, convection, sea floor spreading, convergent, divergent, transform, continental drift, tectonic plates, Pangaea, fault, volcano, magma, latitude, longitude, lava, earthquake, compression, tension, normal fault, reverse fault, & strike slip fault.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by!
