This resource contains six ancient Egypt learning stations that students can rotate through in small groups. Each learning station (or center) is designed to give students engaging and exciting learning experiences to practice, enrich, review, and enhance their learning. Students will visit each station with a small group and complete ancient Egypt activities.
How cool is this? Students will create an interactive sphinx to showcase their learning. They’ll “build” flip-able parts of the sphinx poster while they progress through the stations. Working both independently and with their small groups, students will have multiple opportunities to develop their understanding of ancient Egypt while they investigate its geography, religion, accomplishments, politics, economics, and society. Then, they’ll put together a sphinx poster that opens up to reveal their learning!
About the Learning Stations:
The Ancient Egypt learning centers or stations are based on the Common Core elements for Social Studies: Geography, Religion, Achievements, Politics/Government, Economy, and Society
STATION 1: GEOGRAPHY
Students learn about the geography of ancient Egypt as they label, color in a map and complete guided notes.
STATION 2: RELIGION
At this station students learn about the religion of ancient Egypt. First, they’ll read a passage. Then, students will complete a cause and effect chart.
STATION 3: ACHIEVEMENTS
Students read a series of reading cards to learn about 5 of ancient Egypt’s significant achievements. Then, fill in several charts to show what they’ve learned.
STATION 4: POLITICS
Students will learn about the Egyptian government in their small groups. Then, they’ll use their knowledge to answer questions on puzzle pieces. They’ll put the puzzle together on their poster.
STATION 5: ECONOMY
At this station students will learn about the economy of ancient Egypt. They’ll collect facts and doodle, too!
STATION 6: SOCIETY
Students will learn about the class structure in ancient Egypt’s civilization. They’ll cut and sort to create a social class pyramid.
ALL STATIONS: VOCABULARY
Students will travel with a vocabulary tracker to each learning station. They’ll collect critical vocabulary and record the definitions as they work.
ABOUT THE INTERACTIVE SPHINX POSTER
Students will easily create an interactive sphinx poster. Each page that they complete during the learning centers will be stacked and placed “inside” the sphinx poster. Then, they’ll create “doors” around their work to reveal a flip-able record of their work inside the poster! It's easy to create, and the "wow factor" can't be beat!
