Divided into six phases called "cataracts," this simulation has students sail the Nile from its source in Africa to where it flows into the Mediterranean.
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.
