Science Acrostics Freebie

After the popularity of my post on using acrostic poems to reinforce science vocabulary, I decided to create a little freebie with 12 ready-to-print acrostics and some tips and ideas for using acrostic poems in science.

Ideas for Use:
~ Create a bulletin board with your acrostics.
~ Use along with a craft.
~ Use after a lab activity.
~ Use after reading the textbook or a read aloud trade book.
~ Use as partner work in a center.
~ Fold and include in science notebooks.
~ Use as review before a quiz.

Ideas for Success:
Step 1: When starting science acrostics with my class, I first model one and complete a simple one as a whole class on a topic everyone is familiar with.
Step 2: Split the class into groups and provide books or resources for them to complete an acrostic together.
Step 3: Have students complete one individually and share their ideas.  They (and you!) will be amazed at the creative ideas they come up with!
Pick up your freebie on GoogleDocs!
