I created this package to assist in helping students understand the scientific vocabulary associated with biomes and ecosystems in a life sciences study. With Next Generation Science and the Common Core Standards, there is a great deal of emphasis on academic vocabulary, but not enough resources available to ensure student achievement. Including academic vocabulary stations for math, science, and social studies has greatly improved student achievement in my classroom, especially for my English Language Learners.
Included in this package you will find 30 biome and ecosystem vocabulary cards with definitions, a vocabulary packet cover page, 2 forms for recording vocabulary words, definitions, and illustrations, 30 biomes and ecosystems task cards (to be laminated, cut, and placed on a ring or in a baggie) with a recording sheet, and 3 biomes and ecosystems academic vocabulary assessments with answer keys. This set of academic vocabulary aligns with Next Generation Science Life Science Standards 3.LS2: Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy and Dynamics.
These activities can be implemented at a word work center, a science vocabulary station, and/or as homework. Students can play together and study independently.
