Egypt Under the Pharaohs

 Today's Focus Question  How did the pharaohs gain authority over a large kingdom? 

Egypt Under the Pharaohs: Vocabulary Study  Today we will study the key vocabulary related to the leaders and governing of Ancient Egypt, using the document Egypt Under the Pharaohs - Cognitive Content Dictionary, which can be found in your Social Studies Google Classroom. We will be using an excerpt from our Social Studies textbook, which can also be found in your Social Studies Google Classroom (as well as here) to help us understand the lesson's key words and concepts. This assignment will be due Friday, October 23

CNN Student News and Current Event Mapping  As we watch CNN Student News today, identify one or two news stories that you can pinpoint geographically and place on the Current Event layer of your Social Studies World Map via Google Maps. 

Hong Kong and the University of Mississippi (Oxford, Mississippi) were both featured in today's segment. After pinning at least one of these places on your map, consider the most important question: What happened here? You should include a title for the event, the date(s) the event took place, a brief summary of what happened, and include an appropriate photo or video.

Homework  (1.) Don't forget that your Map of Ancient Egypt is due Friday, October 23. (2.) Complete the Egypt Under the Pharaohs - Cognitive Content Dictionary by Friday, October 23
