Teachers Network: Adaptor Grants: Egyptian Art: The Case of the Missing Mummy
Adapted By:
Rona Raines

Rona Raines has been teaching for 25 years, most of that time in a Talented and Gifted classroom.

P.S. 124
New York, NY
Principal: Alice Hom


Modifications


We did more Internet research and used a greater variety of book research than was indicated in the original. We also visited the Metropolitan Museum rather than take a virtual tour.

Instructional Objectives


Students Will:

  • Be introduced to Internet research
  • To become familiar with a time and culture very different from our own

Technology Integration


Technology played a huge role!!! Most of our research was done on the internet. The class developed their own list of interesting sites.  All children learned how to Google for information.


Assessment


I assessed my students by evaluating their written work and the understanding they exhibited while creating a part of the project.


Tips for Teachers


My project became more historical rather than art based, though there was certainly a large art component.   I had spent quiote a bit of time introducing computer skills to my second graders before we began. I would suggest the same to make the project enjoyable. My kids really loved discovering floor plans of tombs and pyramids. And of course, anything about mummies was great!
