Each cataract focuses on different aspects of Egyptian history, culture, or geography. To navigate these divisions, students complete a series of requirements while traveling as citizens of one of five ancient cities. Sample tasks: make a 3-D map of the Nile valley; use Egyptian numbers and hieroglyphs; construct masks to wear in the afterworld; study Ancient Egyptian myths, religion, art, and architecture; create costumes; and participate in a festival and living museum. Time: 15–23 days.
