By the end of the week, students will be able to describe how Egyptian culture spread ideas, goods, and practices beyond its borders through trade. Students will participate in activities that will help them reach a deeper understanding of the impact of ancient Egypt’s culture on the ancient world, throughout history to today.
During this week, students will participate in a flipped classroom. Students will need to have access to their computers nightly in order to complete their homework. Homework themes are designated in the “Week at a Glance” table and will be presented using videos and some short readings.
