PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


Ancient Egypt: Gods and Pyramids
is a 127 slide presentation on ancient Egyptian religious beliefs. Did you ever wonder why the ancient Egyptians spent so much money and time on death rituals? What did they believe that caused them to be so preoccupied with death? Find out in this fascinating presentation that delves into the questions of how Ancient Egyptians solved the problem of living for an eternity, or how to die and take it with you too.

The ancient Egyptians loved life and the world around them. They believed that not even death would end this love. The Egyptians observed that the desert naturally mummified the dead and so evolved their religious belief that immortality was dependent on a recognizable physical body. This presentation is about that quest. How to ensure that one may enter the Land of the Dead. How to indefinitely preserve the body. How to take your stuff and status with you into eternity, and how to keep your body and stuff from being destroyed or stolen by thieves.

Built into this presentation are 6 class discussions and 7 writing opportunities. The students will learn how to identify 10 Egyptian gods whom are found in various paintings and statues. They will answer 3 standard's based questions on Ancient Egypt and identify the 12 gods and individuals depicted in the sacred ceremony of the Weighing of the Heart.

This presentation is highly interactive and engaging with 30 photos of actual tomb paintings and grave goods, plus numerous others of statues and pyramids.
