These vocabulary strategies are loved in my classroom and always used at the beginning of a science unit. In CATEGORIZE and LABEL, students use background knowledge and instinct to sort and label words into groups that make sense to them. In the other activity, students classify words on a continuum of "never heard this word" to "I know many ways to use this word."
(Ex vocab words-producer, consumer, decomposer, herbivore, carnivore, omnivore, salt marsh, estuary, temperate forest etc) Download the preview to see a complete list of vocabulary words
