Activity One

  1. Develop a timeline to show when the different Pharaoh's ruled Ancient Egypt.

Tips for the Timeline

  • Go back as far as 3000BC
  • Divide you A3 page horizontally, then draw your line
  • Divide 40 by 15 (this will give you the date intervals)
  • Turn the page to portrait to write information about the pharaohs

Activity Two

  1. Chose a Pharaoh that interests you to research as you are going to design a 'Fakebook' page for him/her. Fakebook can be found at http://www.classtools.net/fb/home/page along with a 90 second tutorial.
  2. What does a 'Fakebook' page include?
    • Name
    • Date of birth
    • Job
