Product Description
Historical Geology Taboo Cards

Historical Geology requires students to learn a lot of new terms quickly! On relative dating day, my students could easily see 6-8 words that are new to them. This can make understanding Earth's history a challenge especially for our ELLs and students who struggle to read. Instead of practicing definitions, teach your students to play Taboo! Taboo is particularly valuable for new vocabulary because it forces students to describe new terminology with words that they are already familiar with. While Taboo is a fun game and inspires some friendly competition, it also builds long-term vocabulary understanding.

This download includes:
-48 Taboo cards with a variety of terms including geologic timeline, radiometric dating, relative dating, and fossil cards.
-Student handout featuring directions for play and score sheets that encourage students to write down terms that they struggle with to review later.
