Wildfire Vocabulary Concepts and Terms with Quiz

Forest fires are becoming more extensive, deadly and expensive every year. It is imperative for our students to be able to read and understand the scope of the problem confronting our world. This means that they need to know the specialized vocabulary concerning wildfires. Most students know and understand the general words and concepts, but with all subjects there is a specialized vocabulary used when writing, speaking and reporting on major wildfires. This presentation is geared for quickly frontloading the vocabulary and concepts your students will encounter in the texts on forest fires. Each word and concept is paired with the definition, part of speech, at least one photograph, and then used in a sentence. The words are presented alphabetically and are paired with a handout for writing down the definition and example sentence. To further aid in practicing the new vocabulary, there are several worksheets included with the product. Each of them comes with an easy to read answer key. A page with You-Tube links to wildfires from around the world, could be used for independent research or shown in-class. To assess vocabulary acquisition there is also a fun power point quiz, that may be given either independently or whole class. The answers follow directly after the final question. In the presenter’s notes, there are explanations as to why certain answers are preferred. over the other choices.
