Once students have had time to study the key terms, everyone is given a copy of the fifth lesson page, which includes a Word Challenge. Several series of words are shown that, when rearranged in correct order, describe a key term defined on the preceding pages. Class members must identify the term and rewrite the scrambled words in the exact order given in the definition. They can look for answers in the list.
