Egypt and Pyramid Sites
Please visit these sites in order to find those you think might be most
informative/enjoyable for your students. Then, please visit with me so that we
can plan an internet-based activity for your students. Here are some options:
Working in small groups, students may create a multimedia scrapbook on a particular
topic (climate, culture, geography, etc), and then present their findings to the class using
the projector and a computer. In this case, students could compile a scrapbook using
Word or, BETTER YET, Powerpoint.
Students can be invited to an Egypt and Africa Scavenger Hunt for information about a
wide variety of topics. Then, as a synthesis task, they can be asked to respond to three
questions that require them to develop an hypothesis based upon their research.
Students can develop a “day in the life” journal in which they must demonstrate their
knowledge of culture, geography, government, etc. Again, they may present these to
Exceptional Egypt Sites (Incredible information, beautiful images, video,
These are mostly multimedia and prove great fun for students and teachers!
