Jet Toy Vocab Review Flip Chart

       Jet Toy is a STEM program in coordination with automotive engineers. Our 5th graders have been part of the Jet Toy program for years. An engineer volunteers his or her time once a week for six weeks to come and teach our children about force and motion along with the basics needed to construct and test their jet toy, balloon powered, vehicles. 
     My teaching partner teaches the Science and Math subjects for our 5th grade team. She  uses flip charts for review and study of vocab. Along with all the hands-on learning being done, the students need to have a good grasp of all the technical vocabulary.  This is where the flip chart comes in.

Some of the vocab words have been glued onto the flip chart.

Students use their books to make sure the definition matches the vocab word.


          Students learn so much by doing hands on activities.  

Enjoy your day!
