7 Ancient Egypt Name Date Everything Visual What happened first? This is a question a time line can answer. A time line places events in the order that they happen. Dates, pictures, and words on them help outline history. Look at the time line on pages 2 7. Then answer the questions. 1. Many dates on the time line are preceded by the abbreviation c. The abbreviation stands for circa, which means about or approximately. Why is the abbreviation used with the dates? 2. The black line of the time line names different periods of ancient Egyptian history. How many periods are identified over the pages? What was the last period? 3. Why does the time line show events that did not take place in ancient Egypt? 4. What happened between c and 1980 B.C.? 5. Why are so many events from Greece shown during the Third Intermediate and Late periods? 6. What North American culture is shown on the time line? ANCIENT EGYPT 7

8 H CROSS-CURRICULAR EXTENSIONS ave students try these activities to expand their knowledge and interest in ancient Egypt. Math, History In the time line that runs along the bottom of pages 2 7, students learn about Egyptian events from 4500 B.C. to 31 B.C. Have students make up math problems using the dates in the time line. For example: How many years are there between when the first semi-permanent villages appeared in Egypt and when the Assyrians conquered Egypt? How many years ago did Alexander the Great conquer Egypt? Then, draw students attention to a few dates on the time line that do not directly deal with Egypt, such as the year the first Olympic Games were held in Greece in 776 B.C. Ask students to locate these places on a world map. Then students can do some research about other events that occurred in world history from 4500 B.C. to 31 B.C. They can add these events to the time line by writing the events and dates on sticky notes and sticking them on the approximate places along the time line in the issue. Language Arts Have students write a short story in which a mummy is one of the characters. The story can take place in the present, or it can take place in ancient Egypt. Students can decide to tell the story in the first person, from the mummy s point of view, or with an omniscient narrator. Ancient Egypt Art, Language Arts On pages 8 and 9, students see various ancient Egyptian gods in some of their many forms. Have students design images to represent the god or goddess of beauty, the moon, the sun, love, the sky, or another part of life. Students should draw two different versions of the god or goddess one in ancient Egyptian form and dress, and the other as a modern representation of the god or goddess. Students should write a brief description of what the god or goddess protected or represents, why they chose to represent it in the form that they did, and how their ancient and modern versions are alike and different. Display the artwork and writings on a bulletin board. Give students opportunities to earn extra credit by reading and summarizing a issue. Geography, Math The Nile River is the longest river in the world. Have students do some research and find the next four longest rivers in the world. Create a chart on the board with the names of the rivers along the side. Along the top, write questions that students have about the rivers, such as In what country or state does the river begin? What is the end point of the river? and How long is the river? Ask students questions that require them to use the chart, such as How much longer is the Nile River than the Amazon River?
