This is a group activity to familiarize students with the vocabulary in "The Cask of Amontillado".
The students define the words in their own terms and then sort them into custom categories on the back. Some of the ones they come up with are pretty interesting!
Some of the words are in bold. Those can be found in the dictionaries we have in my class. I do that for the ones that do not have smart phones. Once you download it, you can un-bold it if you like!
Amontillado, Connoisseur, Parti-striped dress, Catacombs, Conical cap, Niter, Motley, Vaults, Vintages, Palazzo, Roquelaire, Free Masons, Flambeaux, Trowel
If you have any questions, let me know!
