Fuerst, Ann Heidt, Ed.
This curriculum guide offers instructional materials to integrate the study of ancient Egyptian art across the curriculum. It is designed to be used in coordination with a student field trip to a related exhibit at the San Diego (California) Museum of Man. Materials can be adapted for use independent of the exhibition. Designed for students and teachers, some materials are in English and Spanish. Lessons follow curriculum area disciplines: history-social science, English-language arts, mathematics, science and health, technology, visual arts, and assessment. Games, activities, datasheets, and worksheets along with teacher answer sheets are provided. Lessons explore topics such as, Egyptian art and artifacts, hieroglyphs, number systems, and mummies. Background information provides illustrations and information about the pre-Dynastic era, the middle kingdom, the new kingdom, royalty, private people, funerary practices in ancient Egypt, and Graeco-Roman concerns. The guide concludes with a glossary and an index. Contains 33 references. (MM)
