Increase student achievement by teaching academic vocabulary!
These 25 words are academic vocabulary words that relate to the NGSS. These are not content-specific science words such as lava, astronomy, atom, or gravity. Instead, they are cross-curricular academic vocabulary words that are very often used in the context of science but will also serve your students well in other subject areas.
This resource includes 25 vocabulary slides. Each slide includes the word, a kid-friendly meaning, an image, and an example sentence. Vocabulary research shows that students learn new words by the examples. These sentences, along with the matching image, will help your students to learn and retain these new words!
