I have done several blog posts about vocabulary task cards. I am a big believer in the activity because it helps students make deep and meaningful connections with and among vocabulary terms and uses a wide variety of learning styles. An additional benefit is that the activities and games I've designed to use the cards with help students work on communication and collaboration skills. This week, I'm going to highlight my Mesopotamia Vocabulary Cards.
In this set, students will work with some familiar words (like writing or laws) and also be introduced to some very unusual terms (like ziggurat or Epic of Gilgamesh). This is an especially good set to use early in the year (which is when we teach it in our World History curriculum) because it gives students confidence that if they trust the process and play the games, they can tackle and master even very intimidating terms like cuneiform or Hammurabi's Code.
So, click the link below for my Mesopotamia Vocabulary Task Cards which are also available as part of a bundle of other vocabulary task cards and as part of my Complete Mesopotamia Unit. And don't forget to visit and follow my store for other great World History resources!
