Disclosure: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.
I have one child in particular who loves science. I mean she LOVES it. She has a collection of notebooks and journals stashed under her bed where she has drawings and observations of the world around her. She is taking a Nature Science class this year and takes her nature journal with her everywhere we go…. Because you never know when you might need to draw nature!
Through the Homeschool Review Crew, we recently received Science Vocabulary Crossword Puzzles from The Critical Thinking Co.™ for grades 4-6. This is a book filled with twenty- five crossword puzzles covering several different scientific topics covering:
- Living Things
- Earth’s Land, Water, and Resources
- Our Solar System
- Matter, Energy, and Forces
- The Human Body
- Science and Scientists
- Inventions and Discoveries
This is a paperback book with 62 pages that includes puzzles and answer keys. The book is not a textbook. There are no lessons. Students should have an understanding of scientific vocabulary before attempting the crossword puzzles. The puzzles are designed to reinforce science vocabulary.
Each puzzle is a two page layout. On the left page are the clues for across and down. On the right page is the puzzle and a word bank. Students don’t have to worry about being able to spell correctly because they can see the word right in front of them. They could even look up the definition of a word if they aren’t sure.
Science Vocabulary Crossword Puzzles are a great way to review and reinforce other lessons your kids are completing. I know my kids get really excited when they find a cross word or other type of word puzzle in their work folders. It is a break from the norm and fun!
My younger two girls are enjoying completing crossword puzzles that correspond with their current science. My 4th grader is taking Nature Science and my 6th grader is taking Earth Science. There are puzzles for both of them in the book!
