Vocabulary Assignment

We learn vocabulary through experience with the words and making connections to other ideas and words. Simply learning definitions is one of the least effective ways to learn new words.  This activity will help strengthen your understanding of each word.

For 10 of our 16 vocabulary words, Draw a picture, create a Word Cloud* with five synonyms, connect the word to a person.

*To create a Word Cloud, draw a cloud with the word inside.  Draw lightning bolts from the cloud that connect to synonyms or words related to the word in the cloud.
