Ancient Egypt archaeological artifacts lesson.

Ancient Egypt archaeological artifacts lesson.

This is a fantastic lesson to get practical. The photos should be printed and laminated and then hidden in some manner. Preferably, hidden in sand to become a true archaeological dig, however they could also be hidden around the school or even just distributed throughout the classroom. Children will find an artifact, draw it, guess what it was used for and then use research or Google reverse image search to find what the item actually was. Makes a brilliant practical lesson with many possibilities. Note: All artifact images have been collated from a Google image search in order to make reverse image search accurate. Consequently, the copyright of these images remains with the individual or organisation.
