This document has two parts; both parts contain the same key vocabulary for the Matter Essential Standards. The first part can be used in a variety of ways; as small flash cards with the word on the front and the definition on the back by folding the middle line and gluing both sides together or you could cut each card for a matching (key word and definition) game. The second part has the word and definition together and is printed much larger; this would best be used for a word wall or introduction of new vocabulary for the lesson.
This document contains 23 vocabulary words for the unit. There is also a blank page of the small and large cards for you to create your own cards. Although this document is not editable, I will be glad to change the background to a different background color or remove the picture if you would like. Each strand has a different pastel color and shape to help students differentiate and classify key vocabulary learned throughout the year.
