100 Words Every High School Graduate Should Know- Printable

*I don’t claim ownership of this list and give full credit to it’s proper owners*

I found this list on Houghton Mifflin Books and thought it was extremely interesting, so I made a printable with definitions!

First, let me say, this is not just for high school graduates! I’m still in high school and am marveled at how many words I didn’t know. There are no age restrictions for learning!

The document is 7 pages long. On the first 3 pages I have included the definitions of the words, and they are in a table format so you can easily cover up one side of the paper and quiz yourself.

I also included, on the last 3 pages, a list of the definitions in a random order so you can quiz yourself by reading the definition and trying to identify the word.

You can find the printable here

I think this would be a fun way to spend your free time, be it before bed or on a long car ride! 

Let me know if you enjoyed this, and how many words you already knew from the list :) x

maelstrom

(n.) a destructive whirlpool which rapidly sucks in objects 

In her anger, the sea witch conjured a maelstrom to trap the sailors. Her horrible laugh echoed over the waves as the calm ocean surface broke, ripping the ship apart board by board until it vanished into the dark chasm of the water.
