Product Description
This fun worksheet allows students to practice their Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics translation skills using several vocabulary words. This activity should probably start as whole group, unless you have older students or GTE. With my younger students, I demonstrate the first one (EGYPT), and we do the second one together (DESERT), then they complete the rest on their own (but asking table-mates to help).

The back is optional, or can be used for differentiation. I've included the blank worksheet (front and back) as well as an answer key.

The last page shows how I teach my students to translate. After laminating the paper, we use dry-erase markers to write. Since several letters can have the same sound, the hieroglyph would be the same. In those cases, students should write all of the possible letters above the space. Once they have figured out the word, each letter of the word can be written in the space.

Vocabulary words for this worksheet: Egypt, desert, King Tut, cobra, tomb, scribe, pharaoh, mummy, Nile, sphinx

Use the hieroglyphic translation key (sold separately).
