Here is an assignment to grade 5 students can work on at home. The due date has not been set yet (Probably sometime in March).
The assignment will involve building a pyramid, burial chamber (mummy), or the Khufu boat, or whatever the student chooses to represent, as long as the focus is on ancient Egypt. It’s supposed to be fun 🙂
Here is the assignment:
