Allow your students to investigate Ancient Egypt and the Egyptian people with this visually engaging Archeology Dig!
This PDF includes images and notes on the settlement of Ancient Egypt. The pages can be used in a variety of ways from direct instruction with analysis interaction to a centers activity if printed out and posted in stations to an archeological dig activity in which students work in pairs or small groups digging for cards and analyzing and recording the information on the provided handout.
Image cards for analysis cover the following topics:
Slaves & Punishment
I print and laminate the cards for the archeological dig activity and students LOVE this lesson! I use this pdf as a wrap up after my students do an "archeological dig" on the artifacts covered.
See preview for complete activity. File also includes complete activity with white background for ease of printing.
Student handouts are included as are wrap-up questions.
