SCIENCE - WORKING WITH WORD MAPS

Hi kids!!

A word map is a visual organizer that promotes vocabulary development. I want you to
make a word map about the Savannah, using the next text.



Savannahs are hot and very dry for most of the year. It only rains in savannahs in the summer when it's humid. This means that plants can only grow well in summer, and that it's difficult for animals to find water during the rest of the year.

Savannahs are habitats for animals, such as zebras, giraffes, gazelles and lions.

Steps: 1. Read the text twice.
           2. Copy the text in your notebook.
           3. Underline the key words
           4. Begin your word map using these key words.

IT'S EASY. ENJOY!!!!!
