Egyptian Gods Information Chart
2 Different Activity Options, each with a organizer/worksheet and key
For the Activity there are two different versions, each using an information chart titled The Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt.
Activity Version 1 has students use the information chart to come up with words they can associate with each god, and also asks them think about situations of why an Egyptian might pray to this god. A Key is provided for this and can also be used to model the activity for students, student answers may vary though.
Activity Version 2 has students use the information chart and look at 15 hypothetical scenarios. Based on the scenario students must decide which god they would pray to and give examples from Egyptian mythology to support their reasoning. A key is provided for each question, but student answers may vary.
