Test your knowledge of ocean acidification vocabulary. There are 14 vocabulary words associated with ocean acidification. The definition of each word is revealed when a player clicks on a vocabulary card. This can be used as a pre-test, to reinforce the vocabulary, and/or to check what students have learned. The game may be played on screen or the cards may be printed and cut out. This game is part of our Ocean Acidification Education series.
