Ancient Egypt Assignment

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:
Build Your Own Pyramid

Here is a good site to use for research.  (Click on Pyramids and explore!)
