My students created flashcards for science vocabulary and content and put 2-3 definitions or statements on each flashcard. I do a myriad of different activities with reviewing the cards to keep the students on their toes. Today each student was given 10 snap cubes (for 10 flashcards) and paired with a partner. When a student determined that the partner mastered a flashcard, the partner earned a snap cube. The goal was to earn all 10 snap cubes. Later, the students exchanged the snap cubes for small prizes. Be sure to check out these great ideas for using flashcards in your science class.
