Next week will mark the beginning of our study of Egypt. Students enjoyed looking briefly at Mesopotamia and had fun creating advertisements to sell real estate in antiquity. On the list to accomplish for our study of Egypt: maps, hieroglyphs, important pharaohs, mummies, and writing persuasive papers. Egypt is a fun unit and students enjoy learning some of the yucky secrets of mummification. Many of the ancient pharaohs really were larger than life, and made their monuments to last forever. During the next month-and-a-half, let your student share what they are learning about this ancient civilization.
Below are pictures of students sharing their advertisements of Mesopotamian real estate.
