These vocabulary cards are designed to align with the Alberta’s Program of Studies (Grade 6 science curriculum), but would likely work with any basic astronomy or space unit.
Vocabulary words/definitions that included are:
- Crescent Moon
- Gibbous Moon
- Inner Planets
- Lunar Eclipse
- Moon phases
- Outer planets
- Solar Eclipse
I have found that my students’ understanding has improved greatly because of an intentional focus on subject specific vocabulary. I hang these on my Science Wall as we cover the words/topics in our unit.
Once downloaded, they are simply need to be printed and hung. You can mount them on cardstock and laminate them for added durability.
