Encouraging Vocabulary Usage
The following are additional ways to facilitate vocabulary usage as students are engaged in the activities throughout this Unit.
Students should be encouraged to use the vocabulary terms:
- Throughout all of the activities
- As they are working in groups
- As they are reflecting
- As they are sharing their knowledge and experience
Tips for Encouraging Vocabulary Usage
- Vocabulary Slalom Course - Mimic the slalom course from Labs 1 and 2 on a wall or the board, and add vocabulary words to each post. Encourage students to use the words in context, in order, throughout the Unit, to reach the end of the course. For each correct word, move them to the next gate! Monitor their progress through the course, and offer a reward for successful completion by a group, an individual, or as a whole class.
- Vocabulary Sensor - Create a 'sensor' out of paper and attach it to something in the classroom, like the pencil sharpener. Whenever students are in that spot, they have to use a vocabulary word in a sentence. Move the 'sensor' to different locations throughout the week, add sound effects if you’d like, and make it a fun sort of 'search and find' vocabulary adventure!
