Content Area Word Pictures

Vocabulary in content area can represent key ideas. For example, vocabulary from a study of plants may include photosynthesis, roots, and leaves. Without the understanding of key vocabulary, a student’s understanding of a topic may be deficient. This set of TextProject Word Pictures provides pictures of imagable concepts that are critical to particular content areas.

When students become familiar with some of the key words within a subject, build on that knowledge by reading aloud tradebooks on those subjects. Take a look at these books in TextProject’s Read Aloud Favorites.
