Geology Vocabulary


Have students use the geology vocabulary included in this packet to create word games, word searches, mazes, crack the code, etc. These can be created by subscribing to site below. This site grants you the right to reproduce as many worksheets as needed for noncommercial, individual, or classroom use.

Students can take any geology vocabulary word and create as many words as possible using only the letters found in that word (e.g., glaciers = ice, race, glare, slice, etc.).

Students can create a rap song or a jingle which could be used to teach others about the geology of North Dakota. Use the vocabulary and definitions provided. Good tunes to use for a jingle include: “Row, Row, Row Your Boat,” “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,” etc. However, students can create their own tune with songs they are familiar with.

Have students write each word 2–3 times with each hand. (These are strong activities as they promote greater brain activity and concentration.)

Have students compose a fiction/nonfiction story using North Dakota geological vocabulary.

Children's Literature Checklist
