Force and Motion Word Wall Words and Activities
The flashcards are meant to be printed on cardstock. You could post them during your unit study on force or add them to your
science Word Wall.
These cards are meant to be printed on cardstock and laminated for durability. They can be used for a Mix-Match activity, where the students walk around finding the members of their triad. They can also be used as an anchor station activity. A student would match the three components for each word. An answer key for self checking is included.
Know or No
This activity helps you assess your students’ prior knowledge of the vocabulary words. It could also be used as a follow-up check of learning.
Magnet Word Summaries
This strategy works especially well with content vocabulary. The magnet words you choose should be the main idea for a subheading or paragraph of the science text. Students read or listen carefully for these important words, then write down any clue words and related words that the “magnet” word attracts. After collecting these words, students write a summary sentence about each main idea word.
In this closed word sort the categories are defined. The student will need to think critically to about the concepts and definitions to place the words in the correct column.
Find Someone Who
This is a review activity. Since it is an active lesson, it gives students the opportunity to move, discuss their understanding, and practice the words.
These maps encourage critical thinking. Students are asked to think about words in new ways. The two types available are can/has/is and always/sometimes/never.
Students will choose any two of the vocabulary words randomly, then create a sentence that shows their understanding of and connections made between the words. This activity may require some teacher modeling. Students could work in pairs or teams to create and discuss sentences.
List – Group – Label
This is a brainstorming activity. Students list all of the words they can think of to go with a concept or word. The words are then sorted into groups of related ideas. Students then label the groups to show the relationship they determined.
