Using EBSCO resources to study Egypt - 2 lesson plans

EBSCO databases (Primary Search and Middle Search) offer a range of magazine articles and reference books in HTML that teachers can use to supplement classroom materials. Here are two sample lessons that incorporate some EBSCO magazines.

King and Commoner
In this unit, students will have an opportunity to explore the daily lives of king and commoner using selected magazine articles from Middle Search Plus, and education websites on the Internet developed for middle school curricula, such as PBS.

"Life in Ancient Egypt"
Students will gain an understanding of the daily life of people in ancient Egypt. Students will recognize and identify connections and parallels between life in the 21st century and early civilizations.
