The Ancient Egyptians had a highly sophisticated society that they maintained for 3000 years. In this activity, students will try to figure out how this degree of success was reached by researching the political, economic, religious, social, intellectual, and artistic characteristics of Ancient Egypt. In addition, they will explore the impact of geography on the development of Egyptian civilization.
Students should use the P.E.R.S.I.A.(N.) model to organize the information in their storyboard. This activity is a great way to organize large sections of textbook information and provides a handy reference for later activities and lessons.
Students could select one of their characteristics and describe why it made the most significant contribution to the longevity of Ancient Egypt in a Frayer Model. Students could also rate their characteristics in order from least to most important.
