When I was in middle school, I loved studying the Egyptians as part of the Ancient Civilizations unit. It is hard to believe their culture remained untouched for thousands of years! I mean, the USA has only been a country for a little over 200 years, and we think the colonial Americans were a long, long time ago.
Then, when I was in architecture school, I studied the art and architecture of the Egyptians and was fascinated by their pyramids and temples. So much so that when I had the opportunity to study in Florence, Italy, I made sure I had enough money to go to Egypt. What a trip that was! In Giza I was able to visit the pyramids and go inside the Great Pyramid of Cheops.
Planning worksheets for elementary activities on Ancient Egypt allowed me to revisit the art and architecture I had previously studies, as well as re-learning about hieroglyphics and other parts of Egyptian history.
Here is the cover for the Activity Packet:
And here are the preview pages showing the range of all of the worksheets in this packet:
One of my favorite activities in the packet is Make A Pyramid. It’s an easy craftivity for students and the end result is pretty cool!
