We have reached the end of our Ancient Egypt Unit, which means another round of WSG Live! This is the second WSG Live! event of the school year and I hope you check it out tonight! You have the unique ability to study with your teacher the night before the test. If you did this last time, I think you discovered that it is a very fun, fast paced, action packed 30 minutes. If you haven't done this yet, I encourage you to check it out and see what it's all about. Come for all of it, or just part of it. We will cover many questions and topics that will be on the test Wednesday, November 27th. Get your fingers ready to go, because when WSG Live! begins, it's time to type like you've never typed before!
WSG Live! Ancient Egypt: 7:30-8:00

Mummification is a fascinating (and gross) ritual of the ancient Egyptians. Ancient Egypt wasn't the only civilization to mummify their dead, but the process in which they did it was very elaborate. Mummification was a very important aspect to their religion and belief of the afterlife. Without preserving the body, their soul would not be able to travel to the Afterlife and gain eternity. Where did these mummies go? In the pyramids. The pyramids were not worship centers or just cool monuments, they were tombs for the mummy and all the other items buried with it. In class, we talked about the steps of mummification but with this prezi, we are going to extend our mummification learning a little further by going in-depth. This mummification prezi will teach you about a few other details about mummification.

TASK: Enter Google Drive and go to the "shared with me" folder. Locate the template for "Float Down the Nile." Read the instructions on the template and use the resources to begin your exploration down the Nile.
DUE: Wednesday, November 27th 2013. 11:59 pm. At this time, your project will "freeze" and will no longer be able to work on it. For this project, you do NOT have to share it with me. That happened automatically this time.
