For those students who tend to crunch up assignment sheets and store them with squashed bananas and sweaty socks in their school bags, here is a downloadable version:
DUE DATE: Thursday 23 August
By now your Emit (or Llatiwonk) should have landed on the desert sands of ancient Egypt. Perhaps your spaceship cleverly transformed into a boat, landing with perfect precision on the waters of the Nile. On the other hand, you may have buried yourselves along with your spaceship in the soft silt of the Nile floodplains. No matter what adventures you have had so far, I hope you’re enjoying the journey. Remember to fill your story with historical information, dialogue with people who lived in ancient Egypt, and your thoughts and evaluations of what you notice and perceive. After all, you don’t get to be an alien or a robot all that often…
Here are some sites you might find interesting and helpful. There is also a quizlet in the post below this one on ancient Egypt. Whiz through it, by all means, but then start your research and report.
