Continents & Other Major Landforms Vocabulary Task Cards

Continents and Other Major Landforms Vocabulary Task Cards

Find out how geography vocabulary task cards can help your middle school social studies students learn and make connections with geography terms while learning to work effectively in cooperative groups.

“…I do, I remember.” I left out the rest of that quote because, as educators, we’ve all heard it about 50 million times. When kids do things, they learn things. If you don’t believe it, just watch a toddler for about 5 minutes.

Learning by doing is an easy concept to apply to subjects like science with all their exploding experiments and cool dissections. But, you can’t build a real pyramid or make a real mummy in class (although, a co-worker of mine made one with a chicken once – it was really neat, but her room stunk for months). So, how can we apply the concept of learning by doing quickly and easily to social studies content area vocabulary?

One way is with task cards. I have several different types of task card resources available, but I’m going to focus on vocabulary task cards this week. Specifically my Continents and Other Major Landform Vocabulary Task Cards. These cards give student-friendly definitions and pictures of 13 different landforms and the 7 continents that your students can move around to make deep connections between the words, their definitions and other terms in the set as they complete various card sort activities and games with them (CLICK HERE for a free vocabulary game resource that works great with these and my other vocabulary cards).
