I have created The Story of King Tut with PowerPoint. This is a story that I have created to introduce the Ancient Egyptian burial process. Whenever I start my Egyptian unit, I start by reading this PowerPoint. It is a great PowerPoint because it covers a lot of information through a story. I do pay a lot of attention to the visual characteristics of an Ancient Egyptian burial masks.
After I finish reading this story to the class, I have students create an Ancient Egyptian burial mask. I teach students how to draw a burial mask step by step. Then they color the mask in with tempera paint and oil pastels.
