Correct use of scientific vocabulary

Correct use of scientific vocabulary
There are many ways to encourage correct use of scientific language in science
lessons: word walls can be created and vocabulary added as the children are
introduced to it, glossaries of terms can be given to provide scaffolding for
listening and talking, reading and writing. Activities such as card sorts can help
children to match words and definitions. When giving written or spoken
formative feedback to learners they can be encouraged to use precise
language. The online science glossary links on Glow are a helpful resource for
teachers when creating word banks and glossaries specific to particular topics.
