This biographical resource about King Tut is designed for upper elementary students. It can be equally utilized in an ELA class or a Social Studies class. Each of the 4 passage can be used one at a time (in sequence) over a number of days, or all at once.
The first three texts are approximately 340 words in length (with a pre-reading question) and the last passage is just over 500 words (it has no pre-reading question).
--- The passages are:
Part 1 – Who was King Tut?
Part 2 – Ancient Egypt
Part 3 – The Discovery of King Tut’s Tomb
Part 4 – King Tut in Modern Times
Each text has a page of questions (inference, factual, and opinion) as well as a page of vocabulary and grammar work. All four passages have a short creative writing assignment and each is illustrated with a photograph. There are a total of 12 student pages and 8 answer key pages.
I have a similar resource for older students which can be seen here:
