Think like a Scientist

Author: Nancy Pham

Have students learn about domain specfic words about science. 

Students will learn some science vocabulary words ahead of time at home. They will read about it in their text books. Then they will take the quiz to see if they know domain specific words that can replace simple words in class. Then we will practice identifying and using these words by reading books and spotting them out with a partner. Then we will write a paragraph using these domain specfic words. All these will be done in class.
