This worksheet was used to introduce the vocabulary words that we studied during our common core-based literature unit on the mysteries. I asked students to start by working with a partner to make a guess and filling in any words that they thought they knew already. After they had worked for several minutes I gave each pair a copy of the word bank and allowed them to work for several more minutes. I gave each student a clean copy of the sheet and we then discussed the correct answers. They recorded these on their papers as we discussed them together, and the worksheets were then used as a vocabulary reference for the remainder of our unit. You could also use the worksheet to review vocabulary that has already been introduced!
