Egypt and Pyramid Sites for Mr by gegeshandong


									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
       the class.
