Product Description
This Earth Science Vocabulary 70+ page package includes the following 12 Vocabulary Lesson Plans with over 400+ Vocabulary words, definitions and concepts.

These 12 vocabulary lesson plans can be used as transparencies or handouts to introduce or review unit vocabulary words. I usually have students look these words up on their own, and then we review them as a class.
