Greetings. I am a certified middle school science teacher from New York with twelve years of classroom experience teaching life and physical science. I have compiled this list of 170 vocabulary terms and definitions that I believe every middle school science student should know to have a well-rounded knowledge of intermediate-level science.
This document would be best suited as an end-of-year review. Students can study the definitions by covering them up with a sheet of paper and testing themselves. Once they can define all terms, they can then learn the terms by covering them up with paper like they did with the definitions. After they are confident that they know all the terms and definitions, they are ready to take the 50 questions test, included. I have also included a key to the test. Everything has been done. All you need to do is make copies.
I hope this can be of use to you. I use it every year and it has done wonders for my students.
