I have put together a matching/sorting game containing the 48 most challenging and common Science words that are used in 5th grade in Texas.
These cards can be used as a match at the beginning of the unit, or a memory game for more of a challenge.
This set has both Space and Earth Science vocabulary and can be separated for a smaller set.
I have ordered the PDF as follows: 4 pages of vocabulary then 4 pages of definitions. In doing so, you can print the PDF using 2 different colors of cardstock for easier sorting (separating the vocabulary from the definitions). I have coded the pages in the upper righthand corner to easily match up the vocabulary pages with their corresponding definition pages.
Another suggestion would be to print out corresponding pages front and back to make flash cards. The cards are centered on the page to make such printing possible.
Please let me know if I can create any other vocabulary sets for you! I have taught many grade levels. In my experience, 5th is the hardest hit for vocab so I focused most attention on it. :)
