Activity Overview


Three thousand years of Ancient Egyptian history is a lot to absorb. Rather than trying to put together a timeline that covers such a vast era, it is useful to isolate a few important individuals, and research their impact on the development of Ancient Egypt. In this activity students will research some Ancient Egyptians who made significant contributions to the success of their civilization.

Using a Spider Map students should answer the question: Which individuals had a significant impact on the development of Ancient Egypt?

Some great choices for this activity include:

  • Ramses III
  • Nefertiti
  • Thutmose III
  • Tutankhamen
  • Khufu
  • Hatshepsut
  • Cleopatra VII
  • Imhotep

Extended Activity

This activity has a number of possible extensions. Students could make a second Spider Map and focus only on important women in ancient Egypt. Alternatively, students could also focus on a single concept throughout Egyptian history, e.g. empire building, architecture, religious development.

As an alternate to this spider map, students can focus on one particular figure in Egyptian History and create a biography poster! You can add additional templates to this assignment and update the instructions accordingly to provide students with more options.
