Transcript of Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt
Mrs. Abdelhadi's 6th grade class
Time traveling expedition!
While cleaning out our messy classroom closet, you find a big dusty, odd-looking machine. After pressing a few buttons you realize it's a time machine set to go to ancient Egypt!!!
Are you ready for an adventure? Quick, hop in!

Once the machine kicks up, you notice instructions written on the side...
It reads "This time machine will only transport you back if you can write your name in hieroglyphics. You will be given the tools you need while on this journey but you MUST complete the tasks ahead."

There's no turning back now. You must pay close attention or you may never make it back...

Process Continued
For your third and final task, you will need to think critically about what you have discovered and explored in Ancient Egypt. Be sure to gather your evidence.
1. Let's discuss our time travel journey with each other on our online "Travel Board." Please create a written composition describing four facts that you found most interesting or useful. What makes it interesting to you? Do you think these have contributed in any way to modern day today? You must comment on at least two other posts from your classmates.


2. With a partner, create a visual "glog" of your journey to Ancient Egypt.
