Programs for the Ancient Egypt Gallery focus on collecting evidence and using artefacts to gain insights into an ancient civilisation through primary and secondary sources.
In the gallery students will develop a different understanding of the diversity of human culture. Key inquiry questions that are addressed include:
- How do we know about the ancient past?
- What emerged as the defining characteristics of ancient society?
Introduce your students to the gallery with some Ancient Egyptian News.
