The Reporting From . . . series combines writing and history into a fun assignment that can be done by a single student or an entire classroom. This unit includes “The Big Picture” that provides a brief summary of daily life in ancient Egypt. It’s designed to serve as a springboard for further discovery and to help students understand how the pieces of history in the unit are related. An “On Assignment” section follows, which includes ten newspaper reporter assignments, from reporting on irrigation methods and writing the obituary of Ramses IV to interviewing an Egyptian archer. Next, the student is given newspaper templates to create their news articles. Artwork representing the time is included to give the student’s paper an authentic feel. When the student or class is done, they will have ten illustrated articles related to ancient Egypt and a better understanding of daily life in that time. 46 pages total. Ages 8-13.
