Welcome to Ancient Egypt
Ancient Egypt Padlet Activity Of all the civilizations we study, Ancient Egypt is usually the one that kids come to class already knowing the most about? What do you know about Ancient Egypt? What prior knowledge do you enter this unit having? Share your prior knowledge on your class's Padlet wall (Period 4 and Period 6).
Now think about what you want to know? What about Ancient Egypt were you always curious about but were afraid to ask? What do hope to learn about Ancient Egypt during this unit? Share your questions on your class's Padlet Wall (Period 4 and Period 6).
Ancient Egypt Webquest In order to get oriented with Ancient Egypt, today we will be working on an Ancient Egypt Webquest, which can be found here. You will be acting as an online Egyptologist, as you are sent all over the Internet to gather information about this important and supremely interesting civilization. You will record your findings using the document Ancient Egypt Webquest, which has been placed in your Social Studies folders. Good luck and have fun! This assignment should be completed by Friday, October 10.
