Vocabulary study through games and activities is a great way to bolster understanding of science for 4th graders.

This provides the necessary basis upon which they can build their scientific inquiry and explore connectivity. Using the extensive, targeted elementary science word lists below, or other fourth grade spelling lists, students can play science games, hear how the words are pronounced, and review knowledge acquisition through online testing. More beneficial than a traditional fourth grade dictionary, these lists include words relating to scientific method, life science terms, astronomy terms, and many more concepts in science for 4th graders.
