Engage your students with this resource on Ancient Egypt: Art, History & Hieroglyphs! A must for any history/art/geography classroom! I created this resource to provide my students with an understanding of ancient Egyptian art and its central role in Egyptian civilization. The aim is to create curiosity, skills in observation, and a desire to visit a museum to see actual examples of Egyptian art. On each page you will find questions, discussion points, color codes, key facts, key images, and more! I've also included a handy teacher guidance page to give you an overview and examples of student goals and how to use the resource.
Also included is an A3 dynasty timeline poster which is a great standalone tool for anyone teaching Ancient Egypt and for students as a reference tool. I generally use this as a poster for the classroom and also as a tool for research activities. It also makes a great hand out for students to keep in their files to accompany a unit on Ancient Egypt.
