This resource is perfect for 6th grade Earth Science - weathering & soil.
It is also a great resource for ESOL academic language support.
It includes 27 cards vocabulary taboo cards. Each card has a weathering/soil vocabulary term and 4 related words below it. For example, 1 card has "soil" at the top. Below it, you have "sediment" "rock" "organic" and "dirt".
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, "soil", without using any of the words below, or "sediment" "rock" "organic" and "dirt".
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: parent rock, leaching, erosion, terracing, no-till farming, cover crop, subsoil, crop rotation, contour plowing, humus, organic, permeable, soil, fertility, loam, topsoil, soil horizon, bedrock, chemical weathering, mechanical weathering, abrasion, gravity, ice wedging, acid rain, renewable, nonrenewable, & conservation.
