Students completed journal entry #19. We then reviewed the Egyptian poems from Friday. Students had the chance to revise their assignment from Friday, if needed. After, we reviewed the upcoming Culture Day assignment and students read articles in small groups about the food and customs of the ancient cultures we've studied. To end class, the groups reported back to the class.
Today, students completed a journal entry (18) on QAR, then completed a group poetry assignment on Egyptian poetry.
Students completed journal entry #15 to practice using their literary terms in context. After, students had the option of sharing their Gilgamesh sound tracks for extra credit. Next, students copied down four more term to their literary list, then watched a five-minute video clip about the Egyptians and wrote down five facts they learned (entry #16). Finally, 3rd and 4th hours took down some Egyptian pre-notes (entry #17). 5th and 6th hours did not have time to do this, so they will do so at the beginning of the hour tomorrow.
