Ancient Egypt Food and Food Tasting Hands-on Learning Activity

(0)
Information and worksheet based learning activity about the foods of the ancient Egyptians. Do this in conjunction with food tasting for a highly memorable and enjoyable lesson for your students. Obviously, be aware of food allergies though and check/warn as appropriate. You should also hand out paper towel and give strict instructions that food disliked should be wrapped in this and put in the bin/insist on students being clean and tidy. Suggestions for foods for them to taste include Egyptian-style foods such as boiled barley grains, chickpeas (cooked or tinned), flat bread, watermelon, cucumber, fresh dates (some chopped for those who only want to try a little- ***care with the seeds*** and homus dip (while we don't have recipes from ancient Egypt it is probable they ate something similar to homus ). After they have tried the dates, tell them the (true) story that Egyptians trained baboons to pick their dates). Finish with the statement that poor Egyptians would have eaten whatever they could catch from the Nile including frogs and snakes if they were desperate and ask if anyone would like to try these foods (see how many hands pop up; student adventurousness if often a surprise). Then pull out some lolly frogs and snakes for them to finish with. Categories

Medieval Shogunate Japan

Medieval Shogunate resources for Year 8 History including -A range of lesson information and activities for geography, religion, structure of society, samurai culture etc. (I also use other resources to cover other aspects of the topic not posted here because they are the work of others) Quality,effective and detailed work but provided without charge in the interest of collegiality. But for a complete unit of work that is far more detailed, engaging, unique, effective and comprehensive, you can also check out my premium Shogun Japan unit of work- much better than this one, different resources and much more detailed, varied, unique and effective- search 'gcmem' or 'Year 8 History Depth Study Asia and the Pacific World Shogun Japan COMPREHENSIVE Whole Unit of Work Parts 1 and 2 Bundle' athttps://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/depth-study-asia-and-the-pacific-world-shogun-japan-whole-unit-of-work-parts-1-and-2-bundle-11492921 also includes program and assessment task and much much more- 49 resource and activity files are included in the bundle and includes a bonus instant lesson on Attila the Hun. I like to offer most resources free (as I said above in the interest of collegiality), but this one is well worth the fair fee as it is weeks of quality work, completely unique and is a complete unit of work with lots of options for teacher choice and to teach to diversity. Also has a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy. If you buy one of my resources, it helps me to pay for resources I buy on TES.
