Explore the wonders of ancient Egypt then construct a 3-D pyramid on which to display your findings.
Students research information about ancient Egyptian people, their artwork, and architecture. Choose four pieces of information that are most important or interesting.
Using recycled file folders or cover stock, create the pyramid by drawing an equilateral triangle with sides measuring 5" each. Angles in the equilateral triangle must measure 60° each. Once the first triangle is complete, create a second equilateral triangle that shares a single side with the first triangle. Then create a third equilateral triangle that shares a side with the second triangle.
Once the third triangle is drawn, measure the "tab" that will be glued to the first triangle. Using the open side of the third triangle, measure approximately 1/2 inch beyond the side. Draw a line parallel to this side of the third triangle at this point. The tab may need to be trimmed at the top and bottom so as to tuck comfortable in when joining to the first triangle.
Before gluing the pyramid together, use Crayola Gel Markers to write and illustrate interesting facts about Egyptians on each section of the pyramid. No facts or illustrations should appear on the tab.
Once students have written their facts and completed their illustrations, fold the form at each of the three triangles' adjoining sides. Fold the side that joins to the tab. This is a total of three folds. Glue the tab inside the open side of the first equilateral triangle. The pyramids should now stand.
Display students pyramids prominently in the classroom.
