When students know their vocabulary words, they are better equipped to understand the concepts and events to which those words refer. Vocabulary comprehension helps 6th, 7th, and 8th graders alike relate words to a particular context, allowing them to grasp the broader lesson at hand. If students don't understand the words used in a lesson, they are not likely to understand the lesson as a whole. That is why vocabulary comprehension is often the difference between pass and fail on a test. An even greater benefit from knowing their vocabulary is that students' interest in learning is increased simply because they understand more of what they are taught and therefore enjoy learning more. Building vocabulary skills through interactive games and fun learning activities keeps middle school students engaged.
