This resource includes four illustrated pages about the Copper Age “iceman” known as Otzi, who was discovered in the Italian Alps in 1991. The informational texts include how he was found, his environment, the procedures taken after his discovery, information on his clothing and tools, and what scientists have learned about Otzi, including his likely murder five thousand years ago.
Two pages of questions (assessing comprehension as well as expressing opinions while citing evidence) are included as well as two vocabulary pages. For this activity, students define each word and then apply that word to what they have learned from the passages. The vocabulary words on both pages are from the texts. Questions and vocabulary work are divided into two sections: for pages 1 and 2 and for pages 3 and 4. Student work pages are clearly marked.
A full answer key is provided. Please note that the examples given on the answer key for vocabulary work are just that - student answers are likely to be phrased differently.
I used a number of books and trusted websites in the creation of this resource.
