Product Description
Card sorts are amazing, they give students the ability to work with vocabulary in a way that helps foster meaningful discussions with one another about content and helps you as the instructor to check for understanding.
You will need to print the Ecology Card Sort CARDS PDF. document and then cut the pages into individual squares/cards per group. I put each set of cards in a zip lock back and really emphasize not letting them mix with the other group’s cards.
First have the students sort the vocabulary cards with the definition cards and discuss their rationale as groups (most will not get every single one correct), then have them present to the class why they put them in that order, or you can go around group to group and they can explain to you.
Once the discussion is over and every group has the Vocabulary cards matched with the correct definition, have them fill in the vocabulary chart. Some of the vocabulary is somewhat abstract and may be difficult to draw a picture, but this is a good metacognitive exercise.

Please give feedback, review on TPT and email me with any questions: craigwilliams4291@gmail.com
