Your students take on the role of a group of archaeologists exploring an ancient Egyptian pyramid!

Plundered Pyramids is a game that uses a six-sided dice and a deck of cards to facilitate invents and thought provoking questions about the ethics associated with archaeology.

This is a very simple role playing game that is best used at the end of the students learning to assist with writing a journal.

This resource is designed in two sections and can be used over number of lessons.

Firstly, the game Plundered Pyramids, is a tool to help students build a narrative for a piece of journal writing. Which is the second section, where students write a journal from the point of view of an archaeologist exploring an ancient pyramid.

This has been made to align with the Australian HASS & English Curriculum at a year 7 level, but is appropriate for a range of year levels and school systems. It can be used to hit the following skills, understandings, and standards.
