What do you know about customs and cultures? People in your community and around the world have different customs and cultures. Here, students explore words that describe people, then and now!
This five-page packet features a sequential set of activities that provides practice with a core group of science vocabulary words. Kids will have fun while developing the word knowledge they need for success with content area comprehension!
As students work, look for opportunities to engage them in deepening their understandings of specific words. This might include saying the word together and noticing any special features (such as a familiar root), asking questions to elucidate meaning, talking about different uses of the word, and discussing word relationships!
