In this highly-engaging Hebrews activity, students begin with reading a Common Core focused text focused on the Hebrews, the enslavement of the Israelites, Canaan, Philistines, Moses, Abraham, Jacob, and the 12 Tribes!
Students work individually or in partner-pairs to analyze the origin of the Hebrews, the role of Abraham, the enslavement of the Jews in Egypt, the role of the 12 tribes, the exodus (led by Moses) out of Egypt and into Canaan.
Once finished, students participate in a fun and engaging Question and Answer game!
This resource includes a paper in-class version and a 1:1 Google compatible version to be used in conjunction with Google Classroom. Just follow the included instructions for how to access the Google version, then share the resource through Google or assign via Google Classroom. This will allow students to type directly into the document!
Tons of fun!
