This is a PowerPoint Presentation on the Ancient Egyptian Writing System. The information in this presentation was taken from the World History: Societies of the Past textbook that accompanies the Grade 8 Social Studies course in Manitoba.
After the presentation is a link to a short youtube video, as well as an activity where students create their name in Hieroglyphs on a piece of poster paper. Once students created this, I posted them on the bulletin board for a few days. You can find a Hieroglyph Alphabet handout anywhere on the web to accompany this presentation. I used the Scholastic version.
