5 Tasks for students to learn/review unit specific vocabulary for the Gr. 6 Sky Science Unit. Students classify each vocabulary term into one of three columns (FLY), then find the proper definitions for each word and practice using them in scientific sentences. They also provide a non-example for each term, and then create a web to show how the vocabulary words are connected/related to one another. This could be one big web, or a series of mini webs.
A template of the Frayer organizer has been included for students who may wish to use it. Some of my students create journal pages for their tasks, others type up the info in Google Drive, others write it all out on lined paper and put it in their duo-tang. You could have them do their tasks with partners, if you wish.
This can start your science unit or be a unit wrap-up/review activity. My class gets 2-3 classes to do all three tasks at the beginning of our unit. We then come back to the chart, and re-sort our words at the end.... the hope is that students can move their words to the left-hand column by the end (thereby showing they understand them).
