This week I want to highlight my Ancient Egypt Vocabulary Task Cards. This set is a great way to introduce the content vocabulary terms for a unit about Ancient Egypt. The terms included are: Nile, Flood, Mummy, Cataract, Valley of the Kings, Pharaoh, Tomb, Hieroglyphics, Upper Egypt, Lower Egypt, The Great Pyramids, Polytheism, Irrigation, Sarcophagus, Sphinx and Pyramid.
I use each set of vocabulary cards to help my students make new connections between the words, their definitions, and images. Then students start to build connections between groups of words they create through cooperative debate and discussion. Once those connections have been established, my students deepen them by playing several different vocabulary games which I offer for FREE at my store!
