Land of the Pharoahs

Return to Teachers Toolkit Search


In this interactive session, students can discover what work and life was like in ancient Egypt through object handling and group work. Students are challenged to identify objects that would have been used by different people in ancient Egypt, from a priest to a farmer to a Pharaoh, learning about the key elements of each job before presenting their findings to the rest of the class. This workshop lets students discover how people, both rich and poor, lived in the land of the Pharaohs.
