What better way to start a unit on ancient Egypt than with paint and glitter!? Your students will think it's the best day ever! Students will develop a foundation of Egypt's environment and geography by building a map of Africa and completing an exit ticket for accountability.
This product is aligned with Virginia's 2nd Grade Social Studies Standards of Learning 2.4a & b (locate ancient Egypt and understand the relationship between the environment and culture).
This product includes an explanation of my classroom implementation, link to the Google Map of Africa, link to a template of Africa, sample of Africa map, and Ancient Egypt Exit Ticket.
