This biographical resource about King Tut includes four reading passages with comprehension and opinion questions, language use activity, a quiz, and a vocabulary activity.
The quiz is in two sections - it could be given at one time or split into two sessions.
Rounding out the resource is a vocabulary activity - students choose a synonym that best matches a word (used in the passages) underlined in the provided sentences. The sentences provided also reinforce what they have learned by reading the four passages about King Tut.
The four passages are:
-- King Tut: An Introduction
-- Ancient Egypt
-- Discovering King Tut’s Tomb
-- King Tut in Modern Times
Each text is about 300 words in length.
