AIS fifth graders enjoy Vocabulary Wars

Fifth grade science classes at Alvarado Intermediate School recently competed in Vocabulary Wars, a competition between classes aimed at helping students master academic vocabulary.

Set up much like a game show, a student from each class is picked at random to compete. The first student to hit the bell gets to answer and if they miss the question, the other class can steal.

To answer students must recognize the vocabulary word or give the academic definition of a word in a complete sentence.
