Author: Winnie Hunsburger Building a science vocabulary Take a good long scientific term that students would or should recognize and scramble the letters TEACHER'S NOTE: you can do this on the board or actually give them the letters print out the word in large type, make as many copies of the word as you have students or groups and cut the letters apart, distribute a set to each student or group. The challenge for them is not only to unscramble the word - but to build as many smaller words as they can. If time allows you you can look at patterns of letters in words, words related to your "big" word, etc. TEACHER'S NOTE: If you are starting a new concept or subject - it can be a great way to introduce it.
