Microscope Vocabulary

All good scientists have a great scientific vocabulary. When using microscopes there are many parts of the microscope as well as describing words that can be used when using a microscope. After introducing and teaching these words to students, allow them to play this vocab matching game. The game consists of cards that are face-down and the goal is to flip over a vocabulary word with the corresponding definition.  The activity can be used as a great introduction or closing activity for students to get them thinking. It can easily be pulled up on the smartboard which would allow for movement, interaction, and engagement. Another way it can be used is when students are working individually on iPads or computers.
