I created this package to assist in teaching students the academic vocabulary associated with map skills. The activities included in this package are meant to be implemented in whole group, at a word work center, at a social studies vocabulary station, and/or as homework. I have included vocabulary flashcards, vocabulary practice pages, a Fiddle Strips! review game, and a final assessment.
Begin by having students cut out their vocabulary cards to use throughout your map skills unit. These cards can be used for students to review independently and/or with a partner. The cards are also useful in working on the activities pages. All of the vocabulary activity pages are centered around the words and definitions on the vocabulary cards. The activities pages can be copied and stapled together as a packet, or implemented as choice for students in their social studies vocabulary stations (word work center, or homework practice). The Maps Fiddle Strips! game is included for students to practice their academic vocabulary in social studies teams. A recording sheet is included for accountability.
