Bell Work, Anticipatory Set, Bellringer, whatever you call it I use this as a warmup each day in my class. This file include 17 slides. 5 questions a day where the students have to use a map and locate the states and capitals.
I have my students use one piece of paper each week to answer these questions. Along with the states there are 5 maps that ask students to locate and identify physical features in the United States. Major rivers, lakes, mountains, and bodies of water.
On each slide is a 5 minute timer. When the bell of the timer rings we go over the questions. This five minutes allows me to take attendance and prepare anything I need to do right before I begin our lesson of the day.
This file contains fill in the blank notes and a PowerPoint presentation about the process the Ancient Egyptians used mummify the dead. There are PDF, Microsoft WWord, and Pages files depending on which type of application you use.
There are 2 PowerPoint presentations included for you to choose from and one Keynote presentation if you use a Mac.
My students have loved this lesson in the past and I typically go and borrow a skeleton from the science teacher along with some salt, playdough, and other items to bring this lesson to life. I would keep the student hidden in my closet and covered up telling the students we had a special guest, who was very old, or that it was one of my former students, something like that to peak their interest.
It's a fun lesson to teach and the students walk away with a better understanding of the process and how long it takes.
