Ready For Your Expedition? Here's How The Worksheet Activity Works:
Sort The Story Blocks To Enter The Tomb
Answer Questions To Match Items With Their Descriptions
Uncover Tut’s Secrets By Assembling The Tomb
This is a classroom-ready printable activity that's curriculum-aligned and designed to engage.
Just print a copy of the kit for each student, and you're done! You can also group students (we recommend groups of 2-4) to develop cooperation and teamwork skills.
Students begin by reading an immersive account of Howard Carter's expedition. Their reading comprehension skills are tested, as they have to correctly arrange the 'story blocks' in order to enter King Tut's tomb.
Once inside, kids will exercise their problem-solving skills to answer questions and match King Tut's treasure to its correct descriptions.
Three 'art therapy chambers' are spaced throughout the activity to give kids a little breathing room. Taking a coloring break lets students rest and recharge, so no one feels burned out by the end of the lesson.
Finally, your kids will apply knowledge and spatial problem-solving skills to arrange King Tut's chambers in the correct order.
Each kid leaves with their own map of Tut’s tomb, a deeper understanding of Ancient Egyptian history, and the burning desire to explore new realms!
Make Learning Fun! Toss The Books!
Did Mary Poppins whisk Michael and Jane off to the library? Did Harry Potter learn everything from a book? Taking learning out of dry textbooks reignites your kids’ passion for knowledge.
Kids who love to learn perform better in school. They also develop the critical learner’s mindset that will carry them through life. The Ancient Egypt Classroom Kit makes learning fun while teaching them more than history.
