Ideas for vocabulary-themed costumes include making costumes based on the word "atom" or "inflame." To make the "atom" costume, create the orbits of the protons and electrons from sturdy paper. Paint the wearer's face red to represent the nucleus, and attach the paper orbits so that they surround the wearer.
To create an "inflame" costume, cut pieces of orange and yellow felt into flame shapes and attach to a red shirt. Make a torch from cardboard and colored construction paper. Write "inflame" on the red shirt to label the vocabulary word and complete the costume.
More vocabulary words that may inspire costumes are "monarch," "vain," "cascade," "rickety" and "zigzag."
