PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit includes a set of 37 vocabulary cards that you can put up on your bulletin board or use to review vocab in small groups. Three blank cards have been included for any additional words you may want to add.

I have included links and questions for portions of a 6 part special on Mount St. Helen’s called back from the Dead. It fits perfectly into the topics we are covering and gives a real life example of some of the concepts like primary succession, pioneer species, populations, interbreeding etc.

I have included student reproducibles, teaching suggestions and guidelines, projects, and activities. They are not separated by type of page, rather they are aligned according to how they make sense to be taught chronologically for ease of teaching. Occasionally small extra units are referred to and they have been included as additional PDFs.

The answer keys to the review pages and other assignments are included in a separate document.

This document includes:
True/False cards to laminate and use for review games
