This five-part lesson about Egypt is designed to help young students explore the similarities between themselves and the other humans who inhabit our planet.
High on the sands of the Sahara Desert stand the pyramids of Egypt, a visual reminder of a superior civilization that thrived along the Nile River beginning over 7000 years ago. This advanced civilization provided the world with a wealth of learning and inventions. The Middle East also gave birth to three major religions.
If we are to have world peace, we must learn to understand and accept one another. These lessons are designed to help young students explore the similarities between themselves and the other humans who inhabit our planet. It is my hope that this understanding will lead to increased tolerance.
This five part lesson about Egypt is designed for elementary level classrooms, and explores the following lessons:
Egypt: Where Is It and What Is It Like?
Comparing Communities: How Long Have the Communities of Egypt and the United States Existed?
Using Artifacts to Uncover Culture: What is This Item and What is its Purpose?
Earning a Living: Farming and Tourism in Egypt
Children in Egypt and the United States: What Do We Share?
