Characteristics of Life Vocabulary Notes Biology

Product Description
To better understand the characteristics of life, students need to understand the vocabulary involved in learning these characteristics. This activity will teach these terms to your ESL students and provide background knowledge when discussing the characteristics of life. Included are 11 vocabulary terms. An animated PowerPoint allows the teacher to introduce each term, definition, image and other discussion before moving on to the next term. Students receive a table to fill in as each term is introduced. A section for translation (in Spanish, but this can be edited to add any language) is included. Students also complete matching activities and card sorts to reinforce their learning. Teacher notes are included in the note section of the PowerPoint.
A quiz has been added to check for understanding. The quiz is in both printable and digital formats.
The matching, card sort and quiz are in English. Students are encouraged to use their translations (if needed) on their notes to learn and recognize the English terminology used in the lesson. The definitions are simple. More detail can be added as ESL students move through the unit.
