Students will love learning about ancient Egypt while answering dynamic comprehension questions and partaking in exciting activities in this lesson plan and packet!
Vocabulary words such as mummification and hieroglyphics are discussed, in addition to main ideas such as geography, religion, and way of life.
Students are able to visualize the importance of the Nile River through a "gifts of the Nile" cartoon panel they create.
The discovery of the Rosetta Stone is also analyzed in detail, allowing students to discuss and debate their beliefs about this ancient stone.
Both inferential and literal questions will engage and challenge your students while teaching them about these Egyptian standards.
There is a pharaoh research report as well, so students can become experts about a pharaoh of their choosing!
