Finally, a fun way to reinforce content area vocabulary! This familiar activity will have students actively thinking about and discussing tide pools. Because students only have to recognize the term matching the definition, not generate it, it is ideal for discussing both new and familiar terms.
30 game boards are included in each set to allow for whole class participation. The special calling cards, featuring fold over flaps to hide the answers, also give you the option of using them in centers - small group of students can play independently without a bingo caller. 30 vocabulary words are used on the cards, but each board only has 25; students have to really think about the words and their definitions, because they may not have a word to match every definition called. Options for extending play past the traditional 5 in a row format increase the learning potential.
The words featured in this engaging activity are algae, arthropod, barnacle, benthic, bilateral symmetry, bivalve, carapace, cilia, crustacean, echinoderms, endoskeleton, exoskeleton, intertidal zone, invertebrate, kelp, lichen, mollusk, molting, neap tides, plankton, radial symmetry, regeneration, sea anemone, spring tides, subtidal zone, supratidal zone (splash zone / spray zone), tentacle, tidal range, tide and tide pool.
