A WordFit puzzle is a great way to introduce vocabulary for a Weather and Water Cycle unit in Earth Science. This type of puzzle is more challenging than a Word Find and will exercise students' logic skills! While a crossword puzzle GIVES the definitions, this resource makes your students put the words in alphabetical order and look up the definitions in their glossary (some will not be in their book, so it is also a good opportunity to learn how to properly use the internet to find the proper definitions). Students will reinforce their scientific knowledge and review spelling while having fun doing a puzzle. Also included is a matching exercise with Latin and Greek roots of weather terms.
The vocabulary focuses instruments used to measure weather, types of clouds and the water cycle. This product includes: 1) Wordfit Puzzle and Answer Key; 2) Worksheet for putting terms in alphabetical order and finding definitions AND answer key
The vocabulary words included are: front, cycle, cirrus, isobar, stratus, weather, climate, cumulus, tornado, millibar, humidity, rain gauge, hurricane, barometer, hygrometer, air pressure, temperature, evaporation, thermometer, cumulonimbus, condensation, precipitation.
