Vocabulary Strategies

4 Square Frayer Model: Have students use the glossary definition, a "real life" definition, a picture and a sentence to describe the

vocabulary word.

Power Point is a nice way to introduce or re-einforce science vocabulary to students. Students can also create their own vocabulary power points. Use animation as a tool to bring in the word, the definition and then a picture. This can provide information in a manner that students can study the words with breaks to see if they can remember the definition etc.
