Part 1: Creation Myth in Ancient Egypt Go to The British Museum Website on Egypt: Click on Gods and Goddesses, and then click on Story. Go through the Egyptian creation story and answer the following questions: 1. Where did ancient Egyptians think all life began? 2. Who was the first god in ancient Egypt? 3. How is this creation myth similar and different from the Mesopotamian creation myth? (Remember darkness, clay, flood, etc?) Similar: Different: Part 2: Worshipping the Gods Go back to Gods and Goddesses, and this time click on Explore. Pick one god to draw a picture of and describe below: God: What was this god s job?: Picture:

2 Part 3: The Journey to the Afterlife Now go to and click on Preparing for the Afterlife. Read the article there and fill in the blanks below. 4. Osiris was such a famous and important god in ancient Egypt because he opened the door of the to everyone. 5. First, you had to earn a place in Ra s (the sun god) boat to get to the afterlife. To board Ra s boat, your heart had to be. To keep your heart light, the Egyptians believed you had to spend a lifetime doing deeds. 6. To earn a place on the boat and travel to the afterlife you had to do three things: a. b. c. 7. What did the Egyptians believe about their two souls? KA life force BA personality ANKH 8. If something happened to your preserved, or if your name was not down somewhere, the Ba and Ka would get lost. They would not come home to your tomb at night and you would disappear forever and not be able to live in the afterlife! This would be the worst punishment to an ancient Egyptian!

3 Now go back to and click on Weighing of the Heart 9. To earn your ride on Ra s boat to the afterlife your spirit had to enter the Hall of Maat. Here the god Anubis your heart. The god recorded the findings. If your heart was lighter than a feather, you passed the test and entered the. But, if your heart was because your deeds were dreadful, the god would suddenly appear and eat your soul! 10. To help Egyptians reach the afterlife safely, many people relied on THE BOOK OF THE DEAD. The Book of the Dead is NOT a book, but a nickname for a bunch of different magical spells written down in tombs or on papyrus to help the soul travel safely to the afterlife. Here is a picture of what the ancient Egyptians thought happened when you died. Based on what you just read, see if you can label the different gods in the picture. The god,, weighs your heart against a., god of scribes, records what happens. Your soul, ba. The beast name,, waits to devour your heart if you are unworthy. Osiris and his wife welcome you to the afterlife!

4 Part 4: Preserving the Body Mummification Now go to Click on Mummification, and then Mummy Maker. Play the game there to learn more about mummification, and answer the following questions. 11.

Put the following steps in the mummification process in order from 1-5: The body is then attended to by the make-up artist who redoes the person s face and fits their wig. Then sacred oils and protective resin are rubbed on the body. Next the wrapping with linen begins. The body is washed in the Nile, and then all organs except the heart are removed from the body. The Egyptians thought the heart was the center of intelligence and not the brain. The brain is thrown away, but the other organs are placed in natron salt to dry out and then put in canopic jars. Final layers of linen and perhaps a mask that resembles the person are placed on the mummy and it is placed in a protective coffin or coffins and finally a sarcophagus. The entire body is covered in natron salt and placed on a slanted board for 40 days until the body has completely dried out. Jewelry and charms are placed within the protective linen wrappings of the mummy to protect them in the afterlife.

5 Part 5: Building a Tomb to keep the body safe! (Pyramids were reserved for pharaohs only, but let s pretend that you are lucky enough to be a part of the royal family!)

Who is the head of the state in Egypt, and what is their job? 15. What is the correct combination for building a pyramid? Location: Slope and Angle: Building Materials: God: % of Workers: Food: How many times a day you will feed the workers: Worker s Living Supplies: Days of Rest: Incentives: Part 6: Plan for your afterlife! You now are ready to Plan Your Afterlife in Ancient Egypt! Go to For each step, write what you purchased, the cost, and why you chose this/these items on the next page. Use what you have learned so far to make wise choices and prove to me what you know!

6 Step 1 Tombs: I chose the, Step 2 Mummification: I chose the, Step 3 Mummy Cases: I chose the, Step 4 Eternity Extras: I chose the, Afterlife Appraisal: How did they rate the items you chose? What would you do differently next time? (At least 4 sentences)

7 Name: Period: World History Mrs. Schenck Explore Egypt Online Summary Use what you learned about Egyptian religion from the online activities to answer the following focus questions from this week.
