Finally, a fun way to reinforce content area vocabulary with small groups or the whole class! This familiar activity will have students actively thinking about and discussing the features of the ocean floor. Because students only have to recognize the word matching the definition, not generate it, it is ideal for discussing both new and familiar terms. 30 game cards are included to allow for whole class participation. The special calling cards, featuring fold over flaps to hide the answers, also give you the option of using them in centers - small group of students can play independently without a bingo caller. 30 vocabulary words are used on the cards, but each board only has 25; students have to really think about the words and their definitions, because they may not have a word to match every definition called. Options for extending play past the traditional 5 in a row format increase the learning potential.
The words used in this activity are abyssal plain, abyssal zone, abyssal hills, barrier reef, bathymetry, benthic zone, biogenous sediment, continental margin, continental rise, continental shelf, continental slope, coral reef, guyot (table mount), hydrogenous sediment, hydrothermal vent, island, island arc, Mariana Trench, mid oceanic ridge, ocean basin, rift valley, seafloor spreading, sea level, seamount, shore, submarine canyon, tectonic plates, terrigenous sediment, topographic map and trench.
