Board games were very common in ancient Egypt and people from all levels of society played them. Many game boards from ancient Egypt have been found by archaeologists. However, the rules explaining how to play these games have not survived. By studying game boards and other evidence, experts have made some educated guesses about how these games were played.

This is your ICT task for this morning.

Task 7:

The death mask of King Tutankhamun is one of the first things people think of whenever they think about Ancient Egypt. We want you to include this idea somewhere in your presentation. You could make a copy of the mask to wear on the day, or use the colours as inspiration for your layout—you might want to find out more about him and use that information in your presentation.

Task 6:

Write a diary entry of ‘family life’. We have been doing independent research on this in class. Think about all you have learnt and think about the things that you do as a family that would have been done in Ancient Egypt.

Task 5:

Gods and Goddesses were a very important part of Ancient Egyptian life. We have learnt about a range of them this week. Your task is to either create a fact file of an Ancient Egyptian God or Goddess or create a God of Goddess for Modern Egypt.

Here is the site you need to explore to find out more God information.

Task 4:

We have been learning about farming in Ancient Egypt this week. Your homework task is to create an illustration showing what farming was like in Ancient Egypt. Think carefully about the people, tools, animals and all of the jobs involved. You might want to make a few small illustrations showing the three different seasons, or try to make one large picture focussing on different jobs around the farming community. As always, be creative!

Task 3:

This week you created a fact file about the River Nile. We would like you to use your research and information to write a factual poem about the River Nile. You can write in verses or make it into an acrostic poem. It should tell the reader what the River Nile is like and how it is useful to the people of Egypt.
