These are definitions and word lists that go along with an unit covering States of Matter. Students are given the definition sheet and the list of words. They are to cut out the words and glue them next to the correct definitions. There are two versions of the word list for you to choose which fits best for your students; fun fonts or an easy to read font.
The definitons fit onto a LEGAL SIZE sheet of paper. Once my students are finished, I have them fold the paper and glue it into their science notebook so they don't lose it.
I have actually seen my students working quietly and quickly to look up definitions to match words to. The cutting and pasting give kinestetic learners something to actually do. Where I have lots of problems getting my students to look up 5 definitions for their notebook, I have yet to have a student not complete a cut-n-paste vocabulary activity.
An answer key is included.
