Help students grades 5 and up differentiate between easily confused word pairs or groups and perplexing science terminology in the areas of physical, life, Earth, and space science.
Confusing Science Terms encourages students to:
- use a science vocabulary journal to construct their own meanings for confusing terms
- write sentences using the terms
- create visual representations for them
Students build science vocabulary and improve science literacy while they increase their knowledge and understanding of science concepts.
This book includes decoding activities and alternative methods of instruction, such as hands-on and small-group activities, games, and journaling, which allow for differentiated instruction. The book supports National Science Education Standards.
