This assignment provides two modified primary source readings on the Ancient Egyptian government and society including all major social classes. On these handouts, content vocabulary appears in bold while academic vocabulary is underlined. You can chose which handout would work best for your entire class or you can differentiate the content by providing individual students with the handout that best aligns with their reading level. Additionally, there is an assignment that will allow students to create a business card, using a specific format, to show the roles and responsibilities of Ancient Egyptian social classes.
