Activity Overview

Prior to beginning a unit on Ancient Egypt or Egyptian Mythology, it is helpful for students to understand the differences between important Egyptian gods and goddesses. If starting this assignment while reading, students can complete this chart to help keep track of important attributes of each god. If completed before reading or before the unit, internet research may be helpful to establish domains and characteristics of particular gods that play a significant role in Egyptian mythology.

Students can use our Picture Encyclopedia pages to do preliminary research on Egyptian gods and goddesses! These pages can be printed out as supplementary information, or to give students an overview.
