We have introduced our Ancient Egypt unit by taking an airplane ride to the African country of Egypt. Students got an overview of what they will be learning over the next few weeks and they are very excited!
By the end of the unit, students will be able to locate Spain, Egypt and Africa on a map or globe. They will also be able to identify the Nile River as being the longest river in the world. Students will be able to identify and describe the three annual seasons of the Ancient Egyptian people. They will be able to compare and contrast Ancient Egypt to contemporary Egypt.
During this unit we will be taking a fun field trip, learning to write using hieroglyphics and creating replicas of Ancient Egyptian artifacts.
