Students become word detectives and solve a mystery with this Ancient Egypt INTERACTIVE WORD WALL – Scavenger Hunt activity. You can set this up as a gallery walk, scavenger hunt, or word wall. Students will read each vocabulary card several times to match the vocabulary words to their definition and fill in the blanks… all while finding clues to solve the case!
Vocabulary words include: Nile River, Khufu, Mummification, Djoser, Amenhotep III, Akhenaten, Lower Egypt, Ramses the Great, New Kingdom, fertile, Dynasty, Thutmose III, Hatshepsut, Upper Egypt, Cleopatra, Aten, Scribes, Osiris, Thoth, sarcophagus, pyramid, Tutankhamun, Valley of Kings, Middle Kingdom, archaeologist, deity, Thebes, hieroglyphics, pharaoh, Old Kingdom, sphinx
Don’t just hang some words on the wall, INTERACT with them! Transform your word wall into an interactive reference tool that students engage with. Don’t let it become just another poster on the wall!
Students will work individually (or in pairs) and race to see who can solve the case first! A friendly competition always increases engagement.
Help your students remember these essential vocabulary terms with this interactive word wall, while decorating your classroom at the same time! Student-friendly definitions are displayed on each of the 30 word posters/vocab cards.
This activity can be used for individual work, partner activities, anticipatory sets, unit review, sub plans, extension activities, early-finishers, or just for fun the day before break.
