Egyptian Tomb Art: Expressions of Religious Beliefs

Ninth graders are introduced to the Prown's technique of describing various objects. As a class, they view pictures of the pyramids in Egypt and discuss how the size and shape of them show their belief in eternal life and religion. They describe them based on the Prown technique and create their own pyramids to end the instructional activity. They also complete the same steps with a Shawabti figure and another object of their choosing.

I love Lesson Planet because it connects me to great websites that have a wealth of information for myself and students. For example, I recently found two great history websites that have a huge amount of pictures--a great place for my foreign language students who need visual aids to comprehend American history. I love Lesson Planet because the lessons are often easy to adapt for a variety of learners.
