CHW 3M: A Review…in 3D!

We have visitors today. Let’s show them what you can do, ladies and gents.

Our goal today is to review what we have learned about ancient Egypt so that we are prepared for the test on Wednesday.  We will use a variety of 3D models to refresh our memories.

Before we begin, please keep the following in mind:

  • use the left mouse button to spin the object around
  • use the right mouse button to move the object up, down, left, or right.
  • First, please examine the model(s) connected to whichever pharaoh you examined last week (Ramses, Tutankhamen, or Akhenaten). I will give about 5 minutes to examine the source and connect it to what you know of the pharaoh you examined.
  • Next, we will share our findings so that everyone will better understand these three pharaohs. In each case, I will ask our experts to explain the connections they have found.

For the next 30 minutes, examine each of the sources below. Make sure you have your notes open so you can establish clear connections between the sources and what we have learned.

When you think you have established a connection, please call Ms. Campbell or me over.
