Put some visual spark in your vocabulary! Science is a vocabulary intensive subject, and the more opportunity students have to interact with the vocabulary the better they will remember. This is a set of English and also a Bilingual (English and Spanish) set of word wall cards. This set covers a Physical Properties of Matter Unit. I also included Science Safety since these are often taught near the beginning of the year.
Classifying Matter and Science Safety Vocabulary Included in this set:
state of matter
triple beam balance
TEKS: 4.5A, 4.5B, 5.5A, 4.1B 5.1A, 5.4A;
Get STAAR Ready!
NGSS: PS1-1 PS1-2 PS1-3
Don't have the space for a word wall? These are still valuable vocabulary resources you could put on a binder ring for students, especially useful Spanish translation of academic content for a small group or personal copy for a new American or ELL.
I've used content based word walls on a trifold before and set it up during small group exercises. I've also used content based word walls at a writing station. Writing in science is amazing!
All cards have the vocabulary word and a picture. There is one English set and then an additional English/Spanish set.
