Differentiation

  • Teachers of younger students could use the definition space to add phonetic symbols to help students learn how to pronounce the terms.
  • Teachers could add their own class-specific terms to the list and then assign them as vocabulary cards for a language arts, social studies, or science class.
  • Other StC classroom resources include this Bulletin Board resource and this Earth Day resource.
