Ecosystems and organisms vocabulary mat study tool with defintions! Includes 36 words--producer, consumer, decomposer, niche, habitat, carnivore, omnivore, herbivore, organism, biome, food chain, species, etc. One mat contains ecosystem-organism related words and the other contains descriptions of specific ecosystems (salt marsh, temperate ocean, estuary, etc.)
Looking for a different way to have students practice vocabulary for science, I came up with the VOCABULARY MAT idea. Students have a mat of vocabulary words and a set of definitions. They work to place the words on the mat with more and more accuracy. I copy the mat onto cardstock for extra durability. You could also just use the vocabulary mat and definitions as regular flash cards.
Aligned with NC Essential Standards-5th Grade (designed to be a study strategy)
