Today, we began writing a poem about Egypt in groups of 4. Students will write 10 to 12 lines about EACH LESSON. There are 4 lessons so a total 40-48 lines for each group.
Then, we'll turn that poem into an Egypt Rap and record them on Wednesday in class. Who knows, maybe some groups can do a green screen video! Who's game????
Let's get CREATIVE!!!!!
We continued work on the Egypt Rap. Really successful groups are writing them on a Google Doc so that everyone in the group can access the rap at home also :)
Check out past Egypt Raps on my Cool Projects page!
Remember: I handed out a study guide today that will help you with your rap but also get you ready for our TEST on THURSDAY!!!!!!
Let's record our Egypt Raps today when you're finished with writing them.
Thursday/Friday 12/15 and 12/16
We watched the video Building the Great Pyramid by the BBC. It's a fantastic look at how the Great Pyramid may have been built. Excellent watch, if you missed this, I'm sure you can find it somewhere on Youtube :)
