I created this package to assist in helping students understand the scientific vocabulary associated with life cycles in animals and insects. With Next Generation Science and the Common Core Standards, there is a great deal of emphasis on academic vocabulary, but not enough resources available to ensure student achievement. Including academic vocabulary stations for math, science, and social studies has greatly improved student achievement in my classroom, especially for my English Language Learners.
Included in this package you will find 24 life cycles vocabulary cards with definitions, a vocabulary packet cover page, 2 forms for recording vocabulary words, definitions, and illustrations, 24 life cycles task cards (to be laminated, cut, and placed on a ring or in a baggie) with a recording sheet, and 2 life cycles academic vocabulary assessments with answer keys.
These activities can be implemented at a word work center, a science vocabulary station, and/or as homework. Students can play together and study independently.
Thanks for viewing!
