Depending on the grade level, this activity will take one to two class periods. This great activity can be used to introduce or further enhance your students' knowledge of people and history of Ancient Egypt.

Lesson 2

This activity is designed to allow students to write a five paragraph essay about Ancient Egypt in a fun and creative way. Students will use the following website to gather information about Ancient Egypt.

This website is very student friendly. The student handout will guide students through the five paragraph essay format. Each paragraph will focus on a different topic such as:
