This gives you great flexibility to dive deeper into any aspect you or your students are interested in regarding the objective.


+ Every piece of this resource comes in a printable PDF file AND a digital Google Slide file. Which means you can use the exact same materials when teaching students in-person, remotely, and most importantly when teaching in a hybrid situation (in-person and remote).

This means you won’t have to search for materials for your students on screen or the students sitting in front of you. This lesson set provides both.

If a student misses the class presentation, you can have them complete their guided notes using the reading passage.

+ The final 5 Questions Review is based on the Blooms Taxonomy levels of questioning. Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis, Evaluation

You can use it as a quiz, review at the end of your unit, or as part of your unit assessment.


When you use this lesson set along with my other ancient Egypt lesson sets, you will have a complete unit. You can confidently teach the core objectives within a two week time frame. You can use any other time you may have for review, games, movies, in-depth projects, and assessments.
