Solar System Taboo Cards
Astronomy units often contain the most new vocabulary words of any unit in Earth Science. This can make understanding our solar system and the universe a challenge especially for our ESL and low reading level students. Instead of practicing definitions, teach your students to play Taboo! Taboo is particularly valuable for new vocabulary because it forces students to describe new terminology with words that they are already familiar with. While Taboo is a fun game and inspires some friendly competition, it also builds long-term vocabulary understanding.
This download includes:
