These science vocabulary charts are aligned to the 5th Grade FOSS unit "Mixtures and Solutions." They can be used independently of FOSS, as the vocabulary aligns with the 5th Grade Next Generation Science Standards.
They cover all the vocabulary from the five investigations in the unit:
1) Separating Mixtures
2) Developing Models
4) Reaching Saturation
5) Fizz Quiz
These charts can be used as a form of self-assessment for students throughout the unis. Students can glue them into their interactive science notebooks at the beginning of each FOSS investigation next to a title page. I have included editable PowerPoints that can be used to display directions for the students for completing the vocabulary charts and the title page.
Throughout the unit, ask students to return to the chart and self-assess again. By the end of the unit, they can make a final assessment, and color in the box of the term based on their final understanding. Green = “I can explain it.” Blue = “I know it!” Yellow = “Sounds familiar.” Red = “I’ve never heard of it.” (Which is hopefully not the case!) They will know to go back and study any red or yellow words before the test.
I hope you find it useful for your teaching!
