This project was conducted to examine how science vocabulary instructional strategies might increase science literacy and comprehension in science. In the literature review, a combination of direct instruction and vocabulary strategies were suggested to improve understanding. During this project, the students spent a lot of time learning vocabulary words for each unit. The summative assessment indicated the students had shown improvement in comprehension and science literacy. Additionally, the students started to use more of the vocabulary terms in their Science Interactive Notebook.
