In this 5 page packet, students analyze maps, images, primary, and secondary sources to determine the main important features of Egyptian geography and how its geography impacted its development as a culture.
Students answer questions, fill out a graphic organizer by reading a brief secondary source about Egyptian geography, and read an excerpt from the ancient Egyptian "Hymn to the Nile" to find evidence. They finish the packet with a review activity using an excerpt from the "Epic of Gilgamesh" to compare and contrast ancient Mesopotamian geography and culture with ancient Egyptian.
A complete teacher answer key is included with this product. This packet can be used as a complete, Common Core aligned lesson plan in class, given for homework, or as a sub plan. It provides ideal preparation for AP World History or Global Regents exams.
