These vocabulary strategies are loved in my classroom and always used at the beginning of a science unit. In CATEGORIZE and LABEL, students use background knowledge and instinct to sort and label words into groups that make sense to them. In the word knowledge continuum activity, students classify words on a continuum of "never heard this word" to "I know many ways to use this word."
(Vocab words-axis, crescent, crater, cycle, day, first quarter, full moon, gibbous, last quarter, new moon, night, orbit, phase, planet, poles, rays, reflection, revolve, rotate, seasons, tilt, waxing, waning, satellite)
