Each subject uses its own content-specific vocabulary that can be overwhelming for the student just introduced to the subject. Ease the transition, and free up students to spend their time really learning the material-instead of the vocabulary-with Vocabulary in the Content Areas. Students will build associations with word anchors, use word study skills such as affixes and rots, use parts of speech, and context clues to help acclimate themselves to the climate of academic and subject-specific vocabulary. A variety of exercises are included, with multiple choice, restated questions, fill-in-the-blank and puzzles. Social Studies for Grades 3-5 includes words in the areas of People, places, communities and American history. 128 reproducible pages, softcover with answer key.
