This 69-slide PowerPoint provides a robust introduction to Egyptian Art from 5000 BCE through 300 CE. Before moving into the artwork, the presentation gives a brief history of Egypt, including its geography, kingdoms, class system, religious. Each is followed by related vocabulary and a brief formative assessment embedded within the PowerPoint.
The artwork presented includes stele (e.g. Palette of Na'rmer, etc.), architecture (e.g. Great Pyramids, Step Pyramids, Great Sphinx, Karnak, etc.), sculpture (Mycerinus and his wife, Menkaure, Akhenaten, Nefertiti, etc.).
Note: The color of the text varies between white and purple. Purple text is meant to be where students focus their attention, as a way of facilitating effective note-taking.
