PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

MEETS VIRGINIA SOLS FOR ANCIENT EGYPT

This packet will give you everything you need to make teaching Egypt a fantastic experience! I have made museums with my students and it is just amazing to see the end result! All you need are about a dozen books about Egypt from the library for reference. Spend a couple days introducing concepts and then divide the class up by "Museum Rooms" and projects and let the investigative exploration begin! The students will be self-directed learners as you create a magnificent museum.
80 pages of great stuff!
This packet has directions for making displays for:
Cartouches
A Rosetta Stone
Hieroglyphics Wall
A large Pyramid
Egyptian temples
Columns
Gods and Goddesses
A water Clock
The Decimal System
Papyrus
Egyptian Houses
3-D physical maps
Agriculture Display for irrigation
Mummification
A paper mache mask
A sarcophagus
Collars, headdress, and arm bands
Interactive Notes: foldables for student notebooks
There are games, maps, vocabulary, interactive notes, study cards, a quiz, and more!

One last idea that is not in this packet is to make the outer coffin of a pharoah by getting a refrigerator box from Lowes. Spray paint it gold and then have them create a border with hieroglyphics and ornamental corner pieces. Use mailing tubes or thick wood dowels underneath for carrying it. This sat in the center of our museum and was a focal point - parents and teachers were speechless. The kids visiting thought we had the coolest room!

This is perfect for Virginia social studies SOL #s 2.1 and 2.4

IF YOU DECIDE TO BUY, WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO PIN IT TO PINTEREST OR G+ AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE? THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP SPREADING THE WORD. Don't forget to follow me so you'll know when I add more units like this one.

Thanks so much! I'm working on a unit for Ancient China that I'll post as soon as I get it done. I'm also working on a new website where I'll be posting all the links I use ... I'm working on that as I get time.

Awesome! Get the Refrigerator box and get parents to help spray paint it gold. Then create a mummy made of newspaper filled trash bags wrapped in masking tape. Then paper mache ... sit it on top of your box and it's very dramatic for your museum!

Hope things are going well! Dig in to the paper mache stuff. We made a large Sphinx out of newspaper and masking tape and then paper mached it and painted it a sandy brown color - it was super weird looking, but the kids LOVED it and they will never have a problem recognizing the real thing because they looked at the pics and read about it for so long!

On  March 14, 2014Elementary Contessa answered:
AWESOME - We also make a Sphinx that is not in this packet. You can make it out of newspaper and masking tape molded to the shape and then paper mache it and paper a light sandy brown.

I am sad to say that I found this after I had finished my Ancient Egypt unit but have it printed and all mapped out for my students to use next year!
On  January 10, 2014Elementary Contessa answered:
I am soooo sorry! You will love it - I know my drawings and pages are not as "cute" as some other things on TPT, but making the museum is not about pencil and paper work ... your students will be doing project based learning like you've never seen. We start each work session as a group and then they break off into small teams to work on things. Try to ask for donations about a month before. Let parents know you are in need of boxes and see if anyone can get you a frig or appliance box. The boxes that are on the bottom of can drink cases or water bottle cases are great to turn on their side and then hang on the wall as a display. Glue small items on the inside like it's a shelf and then cover with saran wrap. Ask for donations of gold can spray paint - but use it outside. It dries really fast!

I hope this worked out for you - it's very cool to try new things each year and your kids will come in each day with more ideas than you and I could create ... and that's the really cool stuff! Pin it for me if you like it - that's my best form of advertising because I don't blog.

On  March 10, 2014,  Buyer asked:
Hi...I am very interested in your unit. Is there a preview available? I usually do not purchase items without a preview. I see the list of what it includes but I would love to know a bit more . I hope you can help me.

On  March 10, 2014Elementary Contessa answered:
Hi! I have added a few pages to the preview section - it was hard to choose because some of the unit is for note taking, some for group work and then some for designing a museum. This summer I plan to add more items to this unit. I am getting ready to add more to my Ancient China unit this week - so once you buy a unit, when I dream up new things I use in my class, I will add them to the units and you get the download updates for free. Hope this answers all your questions. Making a museum in the classroom is a lot of fun.

Hi! I teach first grade at an American school in Brazil and our school puts on an international festival. The first graders are studying Egypt, and I was wondering what grade you teach and if you think these materials are appropriate for first grade or could be adapted. Our first week is a map and geography unit, followed by a study of ancient Egypt. Do you need a lot of additional materials for the artifacts? (We unfortunately lack access to a crafting store here). Thanks!

No - it doesn't require much of anything in craft supplies. I pride myself on using what's already around ... a box, coffee grounds or tea to dye something, paint, newspaper. I don't think all of the unit would be something you could use. It was designed for our 2nd grade curriculum so some of the vocabulary and such may be too hard, but there are many other things that would probably be very helpful. I have done a little trick for you. I uploaded the unit into another item's site so I could sell it to you for much less since you may not be able to use it all, I'll help you out. I have a Back To School Journal product that doesn't sell right now because it's the wrong time of year. It's just $4.00 - buy that and when you download it, it will actually be the huge Ancient Egypt unit you are downloading. Then respond back to the answer or email me at stmcmillian@yahoo.com letting me know you've made the purchase and I will put back the other PDF for the Back To School Journals - then as a bonus ... you can download the Back To School Journal product free anytime you want once I've fixed it back because that's what will be in your account. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/BACK-TO-SCHOOL-JOURNAL-FUN-FOR-1ST-AND-2ND-GRADERS-299907

On  October 6, 2013Elementary Contessa answered:
You are the first to ask so I never noticed that I don't have Titles on these - 46 and 47 make an Egyptian Pharaoh head piece for wearing. I will put a title on that and fix. I don't have a picture handy for it. But I do see other areas that need fixes and I have some more items to add to this unit so I'm working on that right now and you'll get an email to do a free download. I just hit the flag by accident while typing and reported my comment as inappropriate - ... the life of a teacher! Hope the pages I'm adding help. Thanks so much for your purchase!
