Learn lots of fun facts about mummies and specifically the discovery of King Tut's tomb with this play based on the To Tell the Truth Game Show Format. To Tell the Truth was a popular television show which has returned with host Anthony Anderson(of Blackish). Three guests all claim to be the real guest being interviewed by a panel. The real guest must tell the truth where the other imposters do not have to do so. Kids must be "truth detectives" to determine just who is the REAL King Tut. Directions and a suggested YouTube Clip to show the idea of the game, comprehension questions, discussion questions and extension activities(and resources) are included.
I really think your students will have fun with this play on King Tut! The play is a great way to have kids show their "acting" abilities!
NOVEMBER 4th is KING TUT Day, a day which celebrates the discovery of the tomb by Howard Carter back on November 4, 1922. Additionally, you could use this play during a unit on Egypt or if you'd like something fun and informative to use on a Friday or before a vacation.
