This product will allow you to get the repetition needed to learn new vocabulary related to the Moon. Instead of the same old "drill and kill", you can teach/review the material in a different, fun and interesting way. This activity is a great way to engage those kinesthetic learners (especially if you have an interactive whiteboard).
In The Scrambled are Words!, students are given a vocabulary word. The definition to the word is below, but the Scrambled are Words! I mean, the words are scrambled. Students need to click and drag the words to put them in the correct order to form a proper definition. To make things a little more challenging, three extra words are included that are not needed. These words are to be dragged next to the three red X's at the bottom of the screen. Each slide is followed by an answer slide so that students can check their answers.
Have a little fun after constructing the correct definition. Have students work on using all of the words to create the silliest sentence possible. Each slide has a silly extra word such as grapefruit or monkeys that should help to make this fun.
This product is in NOTEBOOK. An opening slide contains COMPLETE directions and suggestions for use.
