This week in Social Studies the topic has been ancient Egypt. First students examined some occupations from ancient Egypt and evaluated which one of them was the most important to Egyptian society. Then the students learned about the history of writing in Egypt and practiced writing with Egyptian hieroglyphics. Also this week, they rotated through 4 stations learning about Egyptian history, pharaohs, mummies, and pyramids. Currently they are completing activities about each of these topics in a portfolio called Egyptian Accomplishments. Students will continue working on these activities in school on Saturday or at home over the weekend.
Monday there will be a quiz on ancient Egypt. There is a Quizlet review to help with vocabulary posted in the Google Classroom.
Have a great weekend!
