Activity Overview

In any Social Studies unit, students are bound to come upon new concepts and vocabulary. It is vital for teachers to build vocabulary instruction into 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. For this activity, students will use the provided worksheet to keep track of new vocabulary for ancient Greece. The worksheets can be customized, so teachers can provide as little or as much guidance as they like, pre-filling vocabulary terms or asking students to find their own! They can also be used digitally or printed out and completed by hand.
