With this volume, Andi Stix and Frank Hrbek thoughtfully guide teachers through two distinct topics: Ancient Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt. It features expansive, multi-dimensional learning tools to support classroom teaching, including a mock archaeological dig, an Egyptomania scavenger hunt, the chance to decipher hieroglyphics in the classroom and learn about the mummification process, and more!
The volume brings materials from across this period of history to life by stimulating and cultivating students’ imaginations.
The Walking Through History series presents student-centered, hands-on activities, active simulations, debates, and discussions, which provide an unparalleled engaging learning experience. Its objective is for students to walk in another’s shoes through lessons based on a particular historical period. Field-tested and proven teaching strategies for virtual and in-person classrooms are highlighted across the series. These books are specifically designed to be used with whiteboard and other interactive tools.
