Here's a cool idea. How big are the pyramids really? What if they were built in Reading? Check this site out. You place the pyramids at your house and it will give you an idea of how big they really are.

Found this on the History Teachers Channel.- You Tube. This is a great strategy for learning, putting the information you need to know or just want to know to music. This song is about mummification in ancient Egypt. "A bunch of linen bandages""Some natron salt, a knife""I'm ready for the afterlife"

Here is a cool game about Egypt from the Discovery Channel called Enigma. There are four different challenges. The first requires you to put a broken relief together. The second is a quiz on your knowledge of Egypt. The third is a pyramid puzzle. The final is identifying imposter hieroglyphics. You can win a screensaver if you can identify different hieroglyphics and what they represent. Click on the picture below

This place is really cool. Search for lost art and artifacts from Egypt, Rome , Greece and other historical time periods. Visit the Mummy's Tomb. Well done interactive game from a museum web site. I found it a bit difficult to navigate, but I am not very experienced with these games. It's worth a look.
