WALT: understand farming in Ancient Egypt and what foods they ate
For your history this week, we would like you to investigate Food & Farming in Ancient Egypt.
As a starting point, work through and discuss the slides below. This will give you lots of information about farming in Ancient Egypt.
Next, read through the Information Sheet all about what they ate during Ancient Egyptian times and then choose one of the following independent activities:
Mild - Can you label the different Ancient Egyptian foods?
Spicy - Can you use the information sheet to write some facts about the different Ancient Egyptian foods?
Hot - Can you use the information sheet to draw and write facts about the different Ancient Egyptian foods?
Challenge! Imagine you are a restaurant owner in the Egyptian times. Can you create a menu to show the different foods you serve? Remember to come up with a catchy name for your restaurant and make the menu bright and engaging.
(You do not need to print off the sheets if you do not want to. You can just draw pictures of the Egyptian foods and write the accompanying information. Alternatively, you may wish to complete your work on the computer)
Please upload your completed work to your folder on Purple Mash
