This lesson has students using recycled goods ( shoe boxes, water bottles, empty milk jugs...) to make a monument as a team. Students then compare their monument to the pyramids and answer a few focus questions. Great intro activity for Egypt or the pyramids, also great team building activity.
This lesson includes step-by-step instructions in the form of a lesson plan, and a student hand out with instructions for the activity.
Note* at the end of the lesson I like to show pictures of the pyramids; however, due to copyright laws I cannot include mine. I use about ten that I get off a search engine. Not a huge part of the lesson and easy to get. Hope this works well for you my students love it!
