The download mentions a no-prep activity to accompany the PowerPoint.
This learning can also double as a STEM lesson! The comprehension activities outline how scientists think the Ancient Egyptians built pyramids. When your class has concluded their learning about the hows, your students become Pyramid Engineers! In groups, they can draw a pyramid, make a model, and finally build their own pyramid.
