Product Description
Weather and Climate Taboo Cards

Weather and Climate units include important terminology. I often find my students mixing up words like ozone layer and greenhouse effect, or cold fronts and continental polar air masses. These simple mix-ups make understanding our weather and climate a challenge especially for our ESL and students who struggle to read. 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:
-96 Taboo cards with a variety of terms including layers of the atmosphere, air masses and fronts, the water cycle, global winds and ocean currents, climate factors, and climate change.
-Student handout featuring directions for play and score sheets that encourage students to write down terms that they struggle with to review later.
