Our Ancient Egypt lesson plan introduces and summarizes Ancient Egypt and includes an overview of the culture and its impact on future civilizations. Students will be especially interested in the pyramids, daily life, hieroglyphics, and other aspects of the Egyptian culture. During this lesson, students are asked to tell the difference between each pair of persons, places, or things (for example, ancient civilizations and modern times). Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to describe, identify and list characteristics of the Egyptian Civilization and its impact on future civilizations.
