Like math lessons, science curricula can be vocabulary-dense. Carnivores feed on herbivores, and both are consumers who feed on primary producers, and…. With so many terms in succession, it can be difficult for students to keep up sometimes even with clear explanations.
Science Vocabulary Pictures™, like all of our Get the Picture™ vocabulary card sets are designed to make vocabulary learning and retention quick and easy. Each set of cards has a different science term on the face, illustrated to look like its meaning. The letters in “gear” have teeth and a belt running between them, while “astronomy” has planets for the vowels and the word is set against a starry background. With such clear illustrations, making a connection between the term and its meaning is rapid, aiding in acquisition and recall.
These cards are ideal for hanging on your word wall, then using as a quick daily discussion of a term a day, or as part of an in-depth lesson, discussing several at once.
Each card is printed in full color on 5.5” x 8.5” coated cardstock. Sets 1-4 have 40 terms each, and are not arranged by grade, so please review the word lists to determine appropriateness for your class. Or buy the bundle of all four sets to save time and money!
Early Grades K-2 is a special, customized set of 82 cards that includes the primary-appropriate words from sets 1-4 and 46 additional words.
