Ancient Egypt is one of the world's oldest civilizations. In sixth grade, we explore both modern and Ancient Egypt's geography, culture, important people and events. Ancient Greek historian, Herodotus, called Egypt "the gift of the Nile." We explore the Nile River, as well as other geographical features of the region and the affects on the people who live there. We study the Ancient culture of the region, including the process of mummification, the purpose and construction of the pyramids and other monuments and temples, and historically important people and events.
