Walk, no run "like an Egyptian" right into the past. This thematic unit is designed to help students understand what life was really like in this ancient civilization. The unit starts off with core teaching lessons to build a base for knowledge, followed by student worksheets that compliment the core lessons. Optional lessons are included to add a degree of flexibility and possible enrichment activities to the lesson. The unit finishes off with a culminating project that challenges students to create their own Ancient Egyptian murals in cooperative leaning groups. This History lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of reading passages, activities, and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
