I am a huge fan of word walls in any class, and have happily created walls for each math unit, science strand, and novel study I undertook. Social studies is my particular love, though, and I find that students can struggle without concrete strategies being provided to help them master the content vocabulary. A word wall is a quick and easy tool to make students comfortable with the new words and terms they encounter.
Here are 3 tips to help make the most of any word wall in Grades 4-7.
1. Display Strategies
2. Play Games!
3. Have Students Choose Some Words
