Product Description
Do you need to add a word wall to your science classroom?

Want to make it visually appealing without taking up all your time?

I have the answer!

This is a set of MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY vocabulary terms in an attractive font surrounded by a polka dot border in 6 different bright colors. Simply print, cut, and hang up in your classroom. Also included are QR codes for each vocabulary word. Scan using a QR code reader and your students can view the definition or meaning.

I have included a page of information on how I set up my word wall. I will be adding my polka dot headings and different categories of words. If you would like your own set of words, please contact me and I will be happy to create a set for you.
