This is a concise, one –block overview of Ancient Egypt comes from my Ancient Civilizations Interactive Notebook . Use the lesson plan to guide you through the activities. Introduce the concept of civilization with white-board graffiti, survey aspects of Ancient Egyptian Civilization with the PowerPoint while students follow along with cloze notes, practice writing using hieroglyphics, and finally, recap the lesson with a ticket out the door.
This interactive notebook activity is great and super fun for comparing and contrasting the Egyptian regions. Explain the relationship between religion and the social and political systems in Mesopotamia and Egypt.
