This vocabulary activity allows students to become familiar with and learn the more challenging/relevant words found in chapters seven through twelve of Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon. They will utilize the internet (or a dictionary) to fill in a chart that requires them to identify the part of speech/definition of each word, as well as corresponding synonyms and antonyms. This chart can be utilized as a reference/study tool to prepare for a vocabulary assessment or to gain a better understanding and appreciation of the novel through close access to the language.
