    Bundle Description

    This is a BUNDLE of Second, Third, and Fourth Grade Next Generation Science Vocabulary Cards and Big Idea Posters. These Vocabulary Cards and Posters are a great tool for teaching all second, third, and fourth grade sciences topics. They follow the fourth grade NGSS standards.

    Vocabulary Cards are included for all grades. Big Idea Posters are currently available for second and third grades only. Fourth grade Big Idea Posters will be added to this resource when we complete the 5E Units for Fourth Grade.

    The vocabulary cards come in two formats. One format has three parts: picture, word, and definition. This format is perfect for a small group or pocket chart matching. The second format is only the word and definition, perfect for a science wall.

    The Big Idea Posters include colorful pictures and concise text that explains the science concepts being taught. They are a great accompaniment to any elementary science classroom.

    The Vocabulary Cards & Posters are included in the Science Stations. Do not purchase this resource if you already own the science stations.
