Product Description
Looking for a strategy to engage students in activating prior knowledge about vocabulary words and make them want to learn the words in an upcoming unit? These two vocabulary strategies are loved in my classroom and always used at the beginning of a science unit. One activity is CATEGORIZE and LABEL where using their own background knowledge and instinct, students sort and label words into groups that make sense to them. In the other activity, students classify words on a continuum of "never heard this word" to "I know many ways to use this word." This one also includes a cheat sheet of definitions for teachers to use as you are helping students master key words. These are doc files so that you can add and delete words that are critical to your units of study. This one focuses on Landforms/weathering/erosion. If you like, look for my ECOSYSTEMS, FORCE and MOTION, GEOMETRY, and WEATHER vocabulary activities.
