Β Week 1
Lesson 1
π“‚€ Your Ancient Egyptian Home and Family
√ We'll set the stage: middle-class family living during the Middle Kingdom of ancient Egypt. √ What your house looked like - from the outside and inside. √ What life was like with your parents, siblings, grandparents and pets. √ The furniture in your home - what was it like? √ Where did you sleep, eat and hang out?
Β Week 2
Lesson 2
π“‚€ Your Food, Clothing and Appearance
√ What would you eat for typical meals? Did youngsters drink beer in Kemet? (They did!) √ What food did you grow and what did you buy at the market? √ What did you wear as a young woman or man; who made your clothes; did you wear a wig or jewelry? √ How about makeup?
Β Week 3
Lesson 3
π“‚€ Learning, Chores and Work
√ What did girls learn; what did boys learn - and who taught them? √ How long did the ancient Egyptians consider childhood in Kemet? √ What kind of work could you expect to do in your lifetime?
Β Week 4
Lesson 4
π“‚€ Friends, Fun and Relationships
√ Entertainment: what was there for young people in Kemet? √ How did you have fun with your family? √ What were festivals and banquets like? √ How did you find someone to marry?
Students will learn that:
1. Because of the way the ancient Egyptian government was organized under the pharaoh, Kemet was often more of a socialist nation rather than under tyrannical rule.
2. Part of what made Egypt so great and long-lasting is that the average people felt responsible for the land (even if it wasn't their own) and were often recruited to fix canals and public structures when they weren't busy earning their livings.
3. Women in ancient Egypt had more rights than almost any other nation in the ancient world, including  many modern nations on earth, as well.
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 a 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.

The only sensitive information is about the supposed sexual freedom young couples had before marriage.  Also, most ancient Egyptian art shows some nudity.
I will be referring to many different websites that feature information on everyday life in ancient Egypt.  And I welcome hearing suggestions from students regarding various resources that I may not know about.
