1 Ancient Egypt Ashley Jones 6 th Grade Social Studies

2 Thematic Statement: This unit is important for students to learn about, because it is a fascinating part of our history, and at the 6 th grade, they are ready for this part of world history and social studies. It is important that they see the variance of that culture to ours, and understand the changing nature of society. Biblical Perspective: This time period in history is viewed with a fallen perspective, and knowledge that we are just as fallen. We see first hand that even the strongest societies can be brought to their knees, and we examine the fact that they were worshiping false gods.

3 Table of Contents: Lesson 1: The Gift of the Nile Lesson 2: The Kingdoms of Egypt Lesson 3: Mummy Making Lesson 4: Ancient Egyptian Culture Lesson 5: Nubia and Kush Lesson 6: Comparing our Worlds Major Concepts: Students will know about Egyptian culture, pharaohs, and history. They will be able to compare Ancient Egypt to modern day, but also to other countries. They will gain a deeper understanding of what mummification is and why the Egyptians did it. They will also gain an appreciation of the government, and economy we have in America.

4 Curriculum Standards: 1. Understand the process of how humans develop, learn and adapt - explain how perspective reflects personal beliefs, experiences and attitudes. 2. Understand the changing nature of society - analyze the impact of economic, historical and political forces on society and behavior Assessment Pre: I would just discuss with them the broad lesson topics by asking questions and seeing their responses. It will be quite obvious what they do and don t know. End: For assigning a grade, I would give them a variety of scenarios and short answer questions, and have them respond. For instance - The Nile didn t flood very high this year. What might be some results of this? - How did trading help advance Egyptian civilization?

5 Social Studies Lesson Plan Template Lesson 1: The Nile River Grade Level: 6 th One Class Period Unit topic: Ancient Egyptian Culture Curriculum standards tied to this lesson: 2 Intended learning outcomes (to know, to do, to create, to value) aka Goals & Objectives: - To learn about the Nile and it s effect on the Egyptian farming culture. - To know where Egypt is in the world, and the different regions of Egypt. Assessment strategies: How will you assess attainment of the intended learning outcomes? _X_ Observation Rubric Peer Assessment Work samples/portfolio Presentation or performance Self-assessment Anecdotal notes Learning log/journal Focused questions Interview/Conference _X_ Other: create questions/answers Materials/preparation: Curriculum text: Our World pg Introduction: #1-Setting the stage: Engaging, motivating, experiencing, connecting with prior knowledge, reflecting, conjecturing posing problems Begin with that clip ^ about the Nile. - Have students make lists of topics they think we will cover (i.e. what is important) and things they want to know about Egypt. After five minutes, draw a line down the middle of the board, and have students come up and write one from each category. Guided Learning Steps: #2-Disclosing: Acquiring knowledge/skills, conceptualizing, developing, understanding, integrating - Ask students if they know what major river flows through Egypt. Either they ll know or you can tell them fairly quickly. - Cover the content from pages with a PowerPoint. - Be sure to cover vocab words fertile, silt, delta, Nilometer, and irrigation. Vocab: - Fertile: producing or capable of producing abundant vegetation or crops - Silt: fine sand, clay, or other material carried by running water and deposited as a sediment, esp. in a channel or harbor - Irrigation: Supply water to (land or crops) to help growth, typically by means of channels.

6 #3-Practicing, reinforcing: Modeling, giving instructions, checking for understanding, guided practice, independent practice, applying, posing and solving problems - Look at a world map and locate Egypt, then have a zoomed in picture showing where the Nile is. - Have students go online and read more information about the Nile River using the website below. If there is more time, let them check out the farming and animal tabs. - #4-Transcending: Summing up, closure, responding, creating, performing, committing, evaluating - Have each pair of students create a question (and answer) about something they learned about the Nile, then have them fold them up and put them in a bowl. Make this into a quiz for the next day. Modifications: How will you change the lesson to meet the needs of individual students? Have the PowerPoint notes already printed out possibly with blanks so they can focus on comprehending the information, rather than writing it down.

7 Social Studies Lesson Plan Template Lesson 2: The Kingdoms of Egypt Grade Level: 6 th One-Two Class Periods Unit topic: Ancient Egyptian Culture Curriculum standards tied to this lesson: 2 Intended learning outcomes (to know, to do, to create, to value) aka Goals & Objectives: Explain how ancient Egypt was united Analyze the workings of government and the importance of religion in Egypt Describe the structure and purpose of the pyramids Explain hieroglyphics, the Egyptian system of writing Assessment strategies: How will you assess attainment of the intended learning outcomes? _X_ Observation Rubric Peer Assessment Work samples/portfolio Presentation or performance _X_ Self-assessment Anecdotal notes Learning log/journal Focused questions Interview/Conference Other (explain): Materials/preparation: - Quizzes printed with questions from the day before. Curriculum text: Our World pg Introduction: #1-Setting the stage: Engaging, motivating, experiencing, connecting with prior knowledge, reflecting, conjecturing posing problems - Begin with the quiz questions from the previous day. Each student needs to answer (depending on the total number of questions on the quiz) 8 out of 10. They may choose which 8. - Do a quick on the board review of the difference between Upper and Lower Egypt and where they are. Guided Learning Steps: #2-Disclosing: Acquiring knowledge/skills, conceptualizing, developing, understanding, integrating - Divide the class into 4 groups, and give them each a section: Egypt is united (pg. 89), Egypt s Government and Religion (pg. 90), The pyramids (pg ), Ancient Egyptian Writing (pg ). Instruct each group to read the section out loud and then decide the main ideas. - Walk around while they do this to make sure they are getting the main ideas of each section, and understand the material. After each group has their few ideas solidified, number them off and have the 1 s, 2 s etc., get together and share their main points of the sections. (Each group will have four people, one from each section) - After the group sharing winds down, ask for any questions the students have about the material. If they have none, ask them questions about the government and pharaohs specifically just to make sure they have a grasp of the content. Nothing specific.

8 - Main Ideas to look for in each group: (for your reference) - Egypt is united: Egyptian culture was thriving with trade, farming and specialized crafts. Menes, the king of Upper Egypt attacked and defeated the king of Lower Egypt, unifying the two, and making himself king of it. He made a unified crown that combined aspects of both Upper and Lower Egypt s old crowns. Menes became the first pharaoh of Egypt and worked to build unity in the new country. This was called the Old Kingdom. - Egypt s Government and Religion: The early pharaohs focused on making sure the kingdom ran smoothly stayed prosperous. The later pharaohs made themselves the center of Egyptian culture. Menes created Memphis, which became the new capital city and it was between Upper and Lower Egypt. Menes was not the only form of government in Egypt, he had local leaders that had duties such as collecting taxes, being judges, making sure flood waters were shared among farmers, and reporting back to the government in Memphis. Ancient Egypt had many gods that varying responsibilities. The most important goddess was Iris who protected people from sickness and harm. The most important god was Ra, the sun god. He gave life to the earth and the people. -The Pyramids: The pyramids were built as tombs for the pharaohs. Zoser was the first pharaoh to have a large stone pyramid built. Zoser s pyramid was unlike the other pyramids. It was a stepped pyramid and did not have smooth sides. The pyramids are a source of information about Egypt because of the way they were built, and the records painted on the walls. The three best-preserved pyramids are at Giza. The largest took 22 years to build, and a large amount of Egypt s resources. Whole cliffs were gone, due to stones being cut out of them. A large amount of taxes went to clothing and feeding the people who worked on the pyramids. - Ancient Egyptian Writing: Hieroglyphics was an 800-symbol system that had symbols for physical things, and letters. Scribes were specially trained writers who had many years of preparation. They started training around age 10, and only boys were allowed. Scribes had to be good at math and needed to have good penmanship. Scribes wrote oh papyrus, which was made from the reeds that grew along the Nile.

9 #3-Practicing, reinforcing: Modeling, giving instructions, checking for understanding, guided practice, independent practice, applying, posing and solving problems - Assign each group a different section (of the four above) than the one they read. They need to use their notes from the group teaching time to do this, but they may also read the section for more information. - After each student has time to look over what they have just learned/read (maybe 5 minutes), have them take a notebook and write down things that they now know about the section, then one question they still have about it. #4-Transcending: Summing up, closure, responding, creating, performing, committing, evaluating - Have them take the question they wrote, and share them with their group. (In case someone couldn t think of a question) Tell them their homework is to find out the answer to their question. Lastly have the students rate from 1-10 how well they think they know and understand the things they learned today, and why. - Collect what they wrote, but be sure they wrote their question down somewhere else. Modifications: How will you change the lesson to meet the needs of individual students? Have the student work as a pair for writing down things they learned and the question they still want to know about.

GROUPS WILL HAVE 4-5 PEOPLE. - A chicken - ½ cup of cheap spices - Roll of paper towels - A container of salt - A large roll of gauze - Markers, buttons, hot glue gun, feathers, beads, patterned paper, scissors, string (all for decorating the boxes/chickens) - Shovel - Rubbermaid that will fit a shoebox inside Curriculum text: Our World pg. 91 & Introduction: #1-Setting the stage: Engaging, motivating, experiencing, connecting with prior knowledge, reflecting, conjecturing posing problems - Explain that they are going to be making mummies out of chickens, and split them into groups of Send them to their station where all the supplies will be right there. Guided Learning Steps: #2-Disclosing: Acquiring knowledge/skills, conceptualizing, developing, understanding, integrating - The chickens will already be clean, but have the students rinse them in a nearby sink then dry them thoroughly. - Next, have them take all their spices and rub the chicken (inside and out) with them until they are all used up. - Now they need to take their salt and rub the chicken all over with salt until it is very dry and covered in salt. - Have them dump the remaining salt in the cavity of the chicken, and wrap the chicken in

11 gauze, until it is completely covered. - At this point, the students may choose (or you may assign) which station to participate in. - Either they can decorate the mummified chicken, or decorate a shoebox sarcophagus. - If you re going to bury it, it might be advisable to put the shoebox in a Rubbermaid to keep out the moisture. #3-Practicing, reinforcing: Modeling, giving instructions, checking for understanding, guided practice, independent practice, applying, posing and solving problems - Along the way, wherever seems appropriate, go through the slides giving the students more information about mummification. - I would suggest between each step of the process, but all at the beginning or end works too. - POWERPOINT #4-Transcending: Summing up, closure, responding, creating, performing, committing, evaluating - Take the chicken I made and bury it somewhere allowed. Be sure to mark where it is, so you can find it the next year. - Dig up the chicken from the previous year and unwrap it to see how it faired. - If something went wrong, discuss why or what might have happened. - Come inside and clean up the mess, if anyone wants a chicken, send home permission slips for them to get signed, and bring back the next day. - Have students journal about what they learned, or what was clarified from today s experience. Hand them in. - Take the chickens home to look at, to make sure things were generally done right. Modifications: How will you change the lesson to meet the needs of individual students? If a students is having a hard time staying on task, it will just require more walking around that specific group, and asking more direct questions. I could also make that group intentionally one person smaller to allow for more focused and on task work in order to keep up.
