Remind students they have been working on making connections to vocabulary words in their Simple Machines Science journals in the last column in the Vocabulary section. Tell them that today they will practice making similar connections using all of the multiple vocabulary words in an activity called Interactive Word Wall. This will help them develop a deeper understanding of the scientific concepts related to simple machines and help prepare them for their mid-unit assessment.
