The flowchart for this lesson gives a brief outline of the histories of the Old and Middle Kingdom periods. The main feature of the Powerpoint is a picture essay on the building of pyramids.
This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. There are also extensive pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes which contain lots of details and interesting trivia to spice up your class.
At the end of the Powerpoint the flowchart automatically unfolds again, this time one second at a time. The dynamic “animated” nature of this feature can serve as a quick review that keeps students’ interest.
