Pyramids

Our Pyramids lesson plan teaches students about ancient pyramids, including when and where they were built, for what purpose, and how they were built. Students participate in a creative activity in which they design their own pyramids based on the information in this lesson.

Our Pyramids lesson plan introduces students to the pyramids, including why and how they were built and their historical significance. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity to build and design their own pyramids, including a description of what they would want inside the pyramid to be used to help them survive the afterlife. Students are also asked to answer true/false questions about pyramids in order to test their understanding of the lesson material.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and describe ancient pyramids, tell how they were built, and explain why they were used.

    This is for all the lessons I have used

    I use these lessons for 5th and sixth grade homeschool. Every lesson has been outstanding. Well researched, an invaluable list of additional resources, and homework sheets. I even use lower grade level lessons. I recommend this site to all my homeschool friends.
