Linking Ancient Egypt to Us

Sixth graders identify and analyze what Ancient Egyptian culture gives them that is still used today. Then they look at the dollar bill, photographs of Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial comparing them to Egyptian art and building. Students also select one place where they can find the influence of Ancient Egypt in their life and write about it.

I discovered Lesson Planet by accident, and am so glad I did. There would be times when I feel the materials provided to me are inadequate, and this site gave me exactly what I was looking for. I really love it when I give a task, and my students completely take over! I observe how determined they are to get the job done, and they feel more confident when the work is a success!
