The following document is a running list of vocabulary terms for the
Carbohydrate, Lipid and Protein unit for Biology. The unit is one of the larger units and contains a lot of vocabulary to keep straight. In order the help the students I have created this study option for home.
Key terms will be added as we introduce them in class- I will put the new terms in a new chart to cut down on printing waste, but the same document will be sent home each time.
A copy of this document will also be posted on my teacher website located at: http://www.greenwoodsd.org/Page/1009
Cut only on solid lines.
Fold the card on the dotted line and put a small piece of tape on the open end to secure and make the flash card that should show the definition on one side and the vocabulary word on the other.
1. Cut the chart apart completely by cutting on all lines.
2. Have your child mix up the cards and try to match the correct definition with the correct vocabulary term.
(A second chart can be printed to act as a key)
