This project was created as a culminating assessment and evaluation task for a unit on electricity. It aligns with the grade six expectations from the Ontario Curriculum, Science and Technology.
The package includes several pages of science and technology terminology/ vocabulary word wall cards which can be printed on cardstock, laminated and posted in the classroom. Included are fully editable copies of extra word wall cards. The word wall cards can be used to introduce and teach the science and technology terminology. Refer to them frequently throughout the teaching of your own classroom electricity unit. This is NOT a complete unit.
