Egyptian Daily Life Activity with Task Cards
This activity allows students to move from topic to topic to gather information about the life and times of the Ancient Egyptians as an introduction to the times. The cards could also be posted around the room as the key information for centers. I laminate cards on construction paper backgrounds. Cards can also be passed from table sets for classes that cannot handle movement! Handout requires that students make comparisons to our current lives and to make judgments about the ancient time period. Wrap up question/writing prompt is provided at end.
12 Topic Description Cards with vivid images for analysis
5 Additional Image Cards
12 Task Cards to add an interactive element
5 Student Pages including a writing prompt for wrap-up

Using the task cards is an optional part of this complete lesson, but adds a fun, interactive element! If you utilize the task cards, you will need to have string, linen strips, clay, salt, and a few other items available for student use!
