Challenge your students to get through the mountain by practicing essential vocabulary terms from your Earth's Changing Surface Unit! This activity serves as a great review before any unit assessment and allows students to match vocabulary terms with their definitions in an exciting and new format! In this activity, students work in pairs to randomly draw definition cards from an envelope. Students match the definition to a specific vocabulary term by writing the term on their student sheet grid. For each match performed correctly, they earn a point! There are also hidden items and treasures in the mountain maze that students can collect. But beware, students may encounter fiendish golems, goats, and landslides they must survive with the roll of a 6-sided die! Include this gamified activity for your classroom and ignite student engagement for your Earth Science unit! No two pairs will have the same maze results!
Need to differentiate or add vocabulary terms to this activity? Not a problem. This package includes blank cards so you can add your own terms and definitions that you want your little gamers to review!
Students will be able to demonstrate skills related to these learning targets:
