Help students differentiate between confused word pairs or triples and perplexing science terminology in the areas of physical, life, earth, and space science. Students will be encouraged to use a science vocabulary journal to construct their own meaning, write a sentence, and create visual representation for each confusing term. They will increase their knowledge and understanding of science concepts through vocabulary building while at the same time improve science literacy. Differentiated instruction is also promoted through decoding activities, as well as alternative methods of instruction such as hands-on and small group activities, games, and journaling.
