2 To the Student What is federalism? How are independence and interdependence different? What does an anthropologist do? Passwords: Social Studies Vocabulary will help you learn the words you need to do well in social studies. The lessons in this book are about social studies topics you will be studying. Each lesson focuses on ten words that will help you understand the topic. The lessons include a reading selection that uses all ten vocabulary words. Four practice activities follow the reading selection. Using each vocabulary word many times will help you remember the word and its meaning. A writing activity ends the lesson. You will use the vocabulary words you have learned to write a journal entry, a letter, a narrative, or a description. If you need help with a vocabulary word as you do the activities, use the Glossary at the back of the book. The Glossary defines each word and tells you the correct pronunciation. It also has pictures to help you understand the meaning of difficult words. As you work on the lessons, you may learn other social studies words besides the vocabulary words. Keep track of those other words in My Social Studies Vocabulary on pages Turn to pages 99 and 100 to learn about roots, prefixes, and suffixes.
