I have used this assignment as both a unit introduction and a take home assignment. This activity requires students to create an original poem that informs their readers about Egyptian history & culture. There are three major rules to this assignment that are explained in depth on this handout. For example, the poem must not only rhyme, but a series of vocabulary words found on this assignment must be used as well. This activity has been a great way to both introduce major concepts surrounding ancient Egypt and allowing students to explore content material specific to their own interests.
