Activity Overview


When students are being introduced to a new unit or concept in science, it's important for them to have a good grasp of scientific vocabulary! It can be very difficult for students to use vocabulary correctly and in the appropriate context. By creating visual vocabulary boards, students will be able to better understand abstract concepts. Visual aids are a powerful way to have students practice new vocabulary in context.
