This is a one stop reference for middle school social studies vocabulary. Formatted into squares, it can be used as a study tool, a tool to vertically align 6th, 7th and 7th grade curriculum, a space for games and/or an interactive word wall starter.
Here are some suggestions on how you might want to use these cards:
• If you don’t cut the pages, the students can cover the definitions to try see if they can come up with the definitions when they see the word. Then they can cover the words to see if they can come up with the words based on the definitions.
• They can use the words and their definitions to help them fill out their Frayer models (matching synonyms, antonyms, drawing a picture, and writing a sentence).
• You can cut the squares apart and play memory, have students match the words to the definition, sort the words and their definitions, and create categories which help show connections and differences between the words.
Most of all it takes all those words, we spend so much time as teachers , looking up, trying to compile, and working to help them make sense to our students, and puts them in one resource for every 6th, 7th, and 8th grade teacher.
