Learn the fascinating truth about the Egyptians. They were incredible builders, but why did they build those pyramids? Were they in love with death? Most Egyptians worked hard, but what else did they do? How did the Nile shape the success of the Egyptian culture and legacy? Each week focuses on one or two aspects of Ancient Egypt. Lessons topics include: pyramids and temples, rulers, scientific contributions, the Rosetta Stone, Egyptian writing and art, and much more. During this class students, practice the art of note-taking during short lectures and assigned reading.
Outside Classwork: Students will practice taking notes from short reading assignments and finishing projects started in class.
