Activity Overview


Learning new vocabulary is an important part of reading any story. Often, new words in an unfamiliar context need to be mastered before a student can understand what’s happening in a story. This is especially important when the story is set in a different time or different country and many words or context is quite unlike what students know.

After choosing a word, students provide a definition and an image or scene that illustrates the word. Students may be provided the vocabulary words, or they can use words that they have discovered through their own reading of the text.
