Students will not need previous Egyptian experience, nor should they be proficient readers. Decoding (sound recognition and blending) is a vital skill, and I will be there to assist them 100% of the way. I'll be reading the majority of the slides to them and engaging them a long the way with questions, imaginative thought, field trips, and quizzes. During our adventure students will be introduced to elements that are customary to ancient Egyptian culture. These include but are not limited...
Students will be exposed to a blended lesson that incorporates: • Math skills with skip counting • Calendar/days of the year recognition • Making inferences with images • Digraph recognition (ph) • Comprehension practice by asking questions related to key details • Fine motor practice with the passport extension activity and mouse/keypad utilization for the bingo game By the end of this class students will be able to: • Identify Africa on a map • Explain who the ancient Egyptian people were • List the contributions they made to modern society • Describe in their own words why the ancient Egyptians were so important • Understand and define key vocabulary words
I am qualified to teach this topic due to my double bachelors in History and Religious Studies from Arizona State University. All content presented in this class is done so in a secular manner.
The only supplies you'll need for this class is your body and your listening ears! The bingo game is played using Google Slides and works best on a computer or laptop. If you can avoid using a tablet or mobile phone that would be best.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be briefly discussing the mummification process, however not in detail. Students will be exposed to the basic idea of mummification: removal of the organs and placing them in canopic jars, wrapping of the body in linen cloth, and the placement of the body in the sarcophagus/tomb.
We will be accessing Google Earth, YouTube, and Google Slides throughout this class.
