In social studies, students are bound to come upon new concepts and vocabulary with every new topic. It is vital for teachers to build in vocabulary instruction in their lessons to enhance students comprehension of complex non-fiction texts and their overall understanding of the subject, and worksheets can provide a helpful resource for students to reference throughout the unit.
Using word maps or vocabulary graphic organizers is an excellent way to engage students in researching the definition of a new word as well as thinking about the term or concept in a variety of ways. Students can further their understanding and retention by illustrating and providing examples for each new word. These graphic organizers, frayer models, and flashcards are perfect for social studies. Teachers can edit them and add beautiful, content-specific art to customize their worksheets for each new topic.
