Today, we are taking another trip up or down the Nile River in Egypt. Students will use a worksheet to compile information from our Chapter 5, lesson 1 reading to understand Egyptian Geography. Then, they will tell a story about their own travel as a trader as they boat on the Nile and inform the reader about what they experience, see, and hear along the way.
Use the below worksheet to guide you on your Journey!
This is Monday Night's homework if you don't finish in class.

Today we read a handout about Hieroglyphs and the Rosetta Stone together in jigsawed groups. Then, we began creating a filmstrip story about the mystery of hieroglyphs until the Rosetta Stone was found and the code was cracked making their written language understandable.
Students will tell the story with a caption and picture for each of the 8 boxes on the filmstrip. They can tell the story in whichever order they please but it must make sense :)
Here's the handout and the filmstrip worksheet to complete this task.
Thurs/Fri 11/30 & 12/1
