It is my hope that this is not only addictive for your students, but addictive for you as well! Cootie catchers (or fortune tellers) are a great way to “trick” your students into learning without them even knowing it. Concepts in science are based around students first understanding the vocabulary and then learning the concept. Test scores have gone up and it is a great way to get them to transition to science class.

Vocabulary 1: Resources
renewable resources
nonrenewable resources
natural resources
energy resource
fossil fuel
mineral resource

Vocabulary 2: Renewable Resources
Renewable resources
solar energy
wind farm
hydroelectric energy
geothermal energy

A second copy of the cootie catcher is included if you would like for students to create their own definitions for the vocabulary terms.

Folding and playing directions included.
