A WordFit puzzle is a great way to introduce vocabulary for a Glacier unit in Earth Science. This type of puzzle is more challenging than a Word Find and will exercise students' logic skills! While a crossword puzzle GIVES the definitions, this resource makes your students put the words in alphabetical order and look up the definitions in their glossary (some will not be in their book, so it is also a good opportunity to learn how to properly use the internet to find the proper definitions). Puzzle include a Word Scramble about the first explorers of Greenland. Also includes an exercise in which glacial features are formed through erosion and which are formed by deposition. #bellringers, #puzzle, #sciencevocabulary, #earthsciencefun, #5E
