To effectively teach science vocabulary it is key to have a creative organized system. Here it is! I introduce six new vocabulary words each week. I give the students a blank vocabulary form that fits perfectly in their interactive notebook. We discuss and use prior schema about what they already know and copy the definitions and draw pictures. They start each week off with definitions and pictures they colored. My students refer back to this page throughout the week as we discuss concepts for the unit.
For slower learners I give the version with the definition written out.
Three different versions per unit included.

Sample Vocabulary Set - The Water Cycle
Each of these sets are found in the corresponding unit bundles. If you plan to purchase the unit bundles, you will NOT need to purchase this bundle.
This SET includes the following vocabulary units:
27 Weekly Vocabulary Sets
Matter and Density
Changes in Water
Mixtures and Solutions
Force and Motion
Weather and Climate
Carbon Dioxide Cycle
Inherited Traits and Learned Behaviors

PLUS: the 12 page vocabulary booklet!
This is a great resource for the students to take home at the beginning of the year to help them complete their vocabulary homework. I also keep a class set if any student wants to use one in class. Parent letter included
BUNDLE INCLUDES: 27 sets and booklet
Each vocabulary set takes about 30 minutes to introduce, discuss, draw and color in class.
Best wishes teaching science!
