Looking for a way to help students learn about the contributions of ancient Egypt AND incorporate technology at the same time?! My 2nd graders used the photographs in a Prezi to identify the contributions of ancient Egypt and reflect on what inventions we have today that were influenced by the ancient Egyptians. This activity also required students to make inferences by using the clues in the photographs to identify the contributions. My 2nd graders had a grand time as historians studying the contributions of ancient Egypt!
This product includes an Ancient Egypt Picture Walk Student Table, link to my Prezi with the photographs, two student samples, and a word bank for scaffolding.
This task is aligned to Virginia's 2nd Grade Social Studies SOL 2.1 (identify contributions, such as 365 day calendar, paper from papyrus, clock, and hieroglyphics, of ancient Egypt).
