Vocabulary task cards are a great way to help your students make deep connections between terms and their definitions as well as between various terms when they complete my vocabulary card sort activities. There’s just something about physically moving cards on a table while interacting with their peers that helps their brains make great connections!

My Ancient Egypt Vocabulary Task Cards include the following 16 terms:

  • Nile
  • Flood
  • Mummy
  • Cataracts
  • Valley of the Kings
  • Pharaoh
  • Tomb
  • Hieroglyphics
  • Upper Egypt
  • Lower Egypt
  • The Great Pyramids
  • Polytheism
  • Irrigation
  • Sarcophagus
  • Sphinx
  • Pyramid

For each term, I provide a “word card” (EX: Polytheism), a “definition card” (EX: The belief in many gods) as well as an “image card” that is a picture to help students remember the terms.

I use each set of 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 games (CLICK HERE for a free vocabulary game resource!).
