This is a set of 12 different vocabulary activities and games for the story The Fabulous Perpetual Motion Machine (Unit 3, Story 1) from the 5th Grade Reading Street 2011 Common Core Edition.
These activities have been developed to help students make real, authentic connections with words that go beyond basic "recalling the definitions." Some games are modeled after real board games (Scattergories and Apples to Apples). You will need an Apples to Apples game to do that activity. Otherwise, all of the rest of the activities are prepared for you. There is also an explanation of all activities.
Included in this set are:
- Cover Page
- Directions for all 12 activities
- 12 activities/game cards:
Apples to Apples
Examples vs. Non-Examples
I Have Who Has
RIVET Teacher and Student Sheets
