Ilene Sennuwy Springer
Using the knowledge of everyday life in ancient Egypt, we will honor this unknown girl by naming her, considering what her home might have been like, guessing what her parents did for a living, and imagining what she might have died from.
US Grade 8 - 11
If you like more questions than answers, please join this class. (Class may go over by 5 minutes). Over twenty years ago, a naturally mummified, 10-year-old girl was discovered in the sand (without linen wrappings or a coffin) by a French archaeologist at Ain Labakha, a Roman fort near the Kharga Oasis in Egypt's southwestern desert. There were about 60 other nameless mummies found along with her. By just looking at her photo, you can still see a full head of hair and the delicate...
Students will learn about the following: 1. Archaeological research that is usually done to determine facts about the life of a mummified person. 2. What it may have been like for a young, Egyptian girl living under Roman conquest. 3. What life was like near a large desert oasis along a famous caravan route in Egypt.
I hold a Certificate of Museum Studies from Harvard University and a Diploma in Egyptology from Oxford College in England. And I’ve been to Egypt three times on personalized, educational tours. I've been captivated by ancient Egypt since I was 10 years old. And I feel it's my destiny to share my enthusiasm for and expertise on this beautiful and brilliant 5000-year-old civilization with all of you. I hope to see you soon for this or another class. I think you'll agree that The Egyptian Room is an attractive, fun and inspiring place to learn. And, please, if you like, call me Ms. Sennuwy - my chosen ancient Egyptian name.
Homework OfferedStudents will not be given formal homework, but I will strongly encourage students to follow up on the material we discuss in class on their own.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedThere will be an informal and fun quiz to download and take together at the beginning of class. At the end of the class, we will review the questions and see what students have retained. They will also receive a worksheet that we did together in class.
1 file available upon enrollmentLearners will receive files to download before the class. They will need nothing except materials or devices if they want to take notes on their own.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The only content which may be objectionable is the photo (s) of the remains of a mummified girl. Some learners could be squeamish about such images or facts about it.
There are a number of passages and images collected from several websites on ancient Egypt. These images and this information will be integrated into a Keynote (PowerPoint) presentation. Students will not have to directly go to any of the websites, but they will receive a list of resources so they can follow up on their own about the subject.
