Home > Social Studies Worksheets > Ancient Egypt
The Egyptian culture was housed in northeastern Africa. The Nile River was a huge source of how Egyptians thrived. The Nile was used to water bountiful crops. Within the river was a great source of plant and animal life that provided food. The Nile was also used to transport trade. The culture was rich in art, religion, and government. Something that many students find interesting about this culture is that those that could read and write were seen as the most powerful of the culture. The Egyptian civilization is one of the most fascinating ancient civilizations because there is still a modern country where it once flourished. In past times Egyptian rulers oversaw territory’s outside their border including parts of modern-day Israel and Syria. For a country that was at one time occupied by several other Nation States including Greeks and Romans, Egypt is a quite a resilient region of the planet.
These worksheets will present new content and text on the series of different theme and concepts related to the ancient Egyptian civilization. We will explore the nature of their royalty and governing systems. We will also begin to tackle the reasoning and purpose behind the pyramids and sphinx. Students will examine their writing systems and farming systems that are still in practice today. These worksheets will help students learn more about this great civilization. The reading passages look at all of the fundamentals of the Ancient Egyptian culture.

Ancient Egyptian civilization is one of the richest early complex societies students can learn about today. Its geography, history, and culture have stood the test of time. The excavation of the tomb of Tutankhamun may be one of the many sources of popular curiosity today as it unearths a glimpse of ancient Egyptian life and beliefs. If you are curious about the pyramids, mummification, and deities, this is a curriculum pack for you!
See the fact file below for more information on putting together an Ancient Egypt Curriculum or alternatively, you can download our 16-page Ancient Egypt Curriculum pack to utilize within the classroom or home environment.
Key Facts & Information
- Short video explainer
- Before we start, watch a short and simple video explainer about Ancient Egypt found in the PDF download.
What to Consider
- Develop geographical skills – Teaching about ancient civilizations always begins with acquainting our learners with the features and significance of geography. It is vital for them to be aware of and realize the crucial role of the surroundings, specifically bodies of water, in the emergence of complex societies such as the Egyptians.
- Use of schema – To spark the learners’ motivation, we always utilize their schema or prior knowledge of the topic. This way, learners could associate with the teacher and the lesson. Be ready if their schema is based on the movie, The Gods of Egypt.
- Make meaning of symbols – Like other complex societies in history, ancient Egypt used symbols to communicate and record. Each symbol seen in Egypt’s great preserved temples, ruins, and papyrus scrolls has meaning to tell.
- Analyze artifacts – Ancient Egyptian religion is a direct manifestation of their life and society. Utilize artifacts that present ancient Egyptian beliefs on life and the afterlife. Explore the representation of their gods and goddesses and how it shaped their society.
- Engage in fun activities and experiments – Learning about the past is not always old. Ancient Egyptians were known for their mummification, pyramids, and complexes. We can engage our learners to do guided experiments on mummifying an orange and building a model pyramid or temple. They can also dress up like Nefertiti and Akhenaten in a play.
- Use of Glossary – Much of what we know today about ancient Egypt is based on archaeology or the science that deals with past human life using objects or material culture. Learners must be acquainted first with terms such as artifact, carbon dating, excavate, fossil, relic, tomb, lithic, and crypt.
- How to deliver
- They say that all civilizations begin with a body of water. In the study of ancient history, the first civilizations formed on river banks. If the Mesopotamians originated on the Tigris/Euphrates rivers, the ancient Chinese on the Huang Ho or Yellow River, and ancient India on the Indus river valley, ancient Egyptians had the Nile River. First, we present our learners with a map showing the surroundings that they can infer. Let them describe its features.
- In addition to a traditional map, try to use Google Earth to show the real-time scope of the Nile River. Explore our Earth using this free application.
- Proceed with the discussion on why rivers were attractive locations for settlements. Let the learners infer the benefits of having a nearby source of water. Inferences may include a supply of drinking water, fertile land for crops, and a means of transportation and trade. With this foundation, we may discuss the ancient Egyptians’ way of life further.
- In exploring ancient Egyptians’ way of life, help our learners’ imagination by providing pictures. Remember to sustain the connection of their everyday life with the Nile River. This way, our learners can appreciate the significance of respecting our environment.
- Before dwelling on the intrigues of ancient Egyptian history, such as the trail over Tutankhamun’s beard, let’s establish the topic with our learners’ schema. Use a modified KWL chart through a Gallery Walk. A Gallery Walk contains images and texts placed around the classroom. So during and after the discussion, our learners can revisit the words (placards) they put on the wall. Style the wall of our classrooms like a gallery. Choose printed images showing the different aspects of Egyptian life (religion, education, government, and economy). Then, using placards or pieces of paper, the learners can write words they know about the said aspects and display them on the wall.
- After learning the basic features of ancient Egyptian life, we may proceed with teaching chronology. The primary use of timelines is to show the sequence and overall impact of the events. In addition to dates and a short description of events, the ancient Egyptian timeline may contain architectural landmarks that are accomplished in a specific period or kingdom.
- It will literally take us years to study Egyptology in-depth. Still, we can simplify this for our young learners by connecting the discussion of architecture (pyramids and complexes) to ancient Egyptian religion, government, and culture. Again, using Google Earth, explore the pyramids and complexes of Egypt like we are there. Rotate, zoom, and take a closer look at the Great Pyramid of Giza and other fantastic landmarks in Egypt. We can also explore the use of virtual field trips to have a close encounter with hieroglyphics and reliefs hidden at the Valley of the Kings.
- Like other polytheistic religions, ancient Egyptians worshipped many gods and goddesses that guided their everyday life and the afterlife. One of the unique features of this civilization is mummification. This process is a manifestation of their deep belief in the afterlife. After discussing the process and purpose of mummification in ancient Egyptian culture, guide the learners on how to mummify a fruit, an orange, or apple, perhaps for Halloween. Print a guide and supervise the experiment. You may also watch this Discovery History Mummification of an Orange video. You can find further instructions in the free PDF download.
- Now that the learners know how to mummify (somewhat), further the discussion by showing them artifacts. It would be a first-hand experience if they could see an actual Egyptian mummy in museums — many museums in and out of the US house Egyptian antiquities. In case a field trip is not possible, we can also present them with primary sources such as the “Book of the Dead”.
- If you are worrying if the mummification process is a bit morbid and gory for young learners, you may focus instead on ancient Egyptian mythology, which also tells stories of creation, bravery, betrayal, life, death, and the afterlife. Kids are drawn to stories and curious about the animal-human features of Egyptian deities.
- You may explore ancient Egyptian mythology in our Mythology & Deities Curriculum.
- Hieroglyphics, or the system of writing of ancient Egyptians, are complex to decipher, but don’t worry! We can still explore simple hieroglyphics in class. To experience how ancient Egyptians expressed and recorded themselves, ask our learners to try writing their names in hieroglyphics!
- Aside from pioneering architecture and executing advanced engineering, ancient Egyptians left significant inventions. We can use this part of the lesson as a follow-up activity for learners to work on by group. The output for this activity could be added to the Gallery Walk. Answers may include the use of eye makeup, papyrus sheets, the plow, breath mints, door locks, and toothpaste.
- Note that a brief explanation should accompany answers on the origins and significance of each invention. For example, ancient Egyptians came up with the first breath mints and toothpaste for their deteriorating teeth and bad breath. Despite having specialists in bone setting, embalming, and surgery, ancient Egyptians lacked dentists. Unfortunately, their bad dental health is not due to enjoying sugary food like candy, but the stones they use to grind flour and make bread left sands that ground down their teeth. The first Egyptian oral care we can associate with the contemporary toothbrush was made from rock salt, dried iris flower, mint, and pepper grains. Aside from associating Egyptian inventions with personal care, our learners add knowledge on the Gallery Walk.
- Another interesting point of discussion is the use of historical themes. We can integrate investigative journalism to explore some of the unsolved mysteries of ancient Egypt, such as the Sphinx of Israel (an Egyptian Sphinx excavated at Tel Hazor), the death of King Tut and the possibilities of genetic disabilities, the hidden chamber of the Great Pyramid, and the disappearance of Queen Nefertiti.
- Our learners can also explore feminism in the ancient world with some of the powerful women pharaohs. It is notable for unearthing the play of gender roles and the emergence of female iconography in ruling ancient Egypt. The intrigues encircling how female pharaohs such as Queen Hatshepsut legitimized her power and embraced all official representations and traditional regalia of pharaohs, such as the false beard, the khat , and the shendyt kilt. Or the power struggle between Cleopatra VII and her brother Ptolemy XIV and the alliance of the former with Julius Caesar. Or Queen Nefertiti’s overarching influence over her husband, Akhenaten, and imposition of monotheism in ancient Egypt.
- Other applicable historical themes to be used may include the rise and fall of civilizations, human-environment interaction, political institutions, changes in societies, and belief systems.
- Learning outcomes
- Along with developing the learners’ geographical skills, respect and love for the environment is a vital target objective. Upon learning how rivers such as the Nile provide life to human settlements and civilizations, taking care of the environment is a perfect effective outcome of the lesson.
- Learners are expected to further their analytic and inferencing skills of primary and secondary sources. Like other ancient civilizations, the Egyptian religion is intertwined with all aspects of their life. Their belief system is evident in tombs, complexes, pyramids, and reliefs, which many have survived for contemporary studies.
- Ancient cultures are diverse, yet they share common features. In addition to mixing religion and mythology and mysterious architecture, most ancient complex societies like Egypt encountered challenges that resulted in extraordinary inventions.

Learning about this culture and the modern world is important because it helps us appreciate their discoveries. Did you know that Ancient Egypt is considered an advanced civilization? Many modern medicines came about because of them.
Hieroglyphics and the Alphabet
Ancient Egyptians used hieroglyphics to record their writing. Each symbol had a different meaning. This is where the modern alphabet comes from. Hieroglyphics are one of the first writing systems in the world. By using signs to communicate, they were pretty smart. One symbol could be translated to a whole word instead of a letter. This made hieroglyphics more advanced than other writing systems.
Before paper, there was papyrus. The surface that the Ancient Egyptians used to keep records on. Their writing system was a lot like ours. They used a reed pen to write on the papyrus. The surface was so smooth that they would later sell it to other countries. Before this, older civilisations had always written on stone.
Sports and Games
The sports played by Ancient Egyptians are still played today. They enjoyed entertainment and games. They played a type of hockey, swam, hunted, and more. These sports and games helped them prepare for war. Do you love going bowling? They invented this game! Historians found what looked like bowling lanes in old Egyptian rooms.
The Ancient Egyptians had a unique math system. They used a system of 7 symbols but could easily add, subtract, multiply, and fraction with them. This math system was so advanced that they even invented modern-day algebra.
The Sundial and Time
The Ancient Egyptians could tell the time by looking at the shadow of a sun dial! The sundial was divided into twelve sections. Each section was for a different time of the day. Early clocks were based on the sundial. Inventors looked at the time on the sundial for accuracy. At night, sundials were turned the opposite way to record the AM hours. The Egyptians could've told you the time without looking at a watch.
They also used calendars. They had 3 different types of calendars! First, there was the lunar calendar that followed the cycles of the moon. This was used to record the days. Then there was a calendar used by government officials. This calendar was a lot like a planner. The third planner matched the lunar one with the normal one used by them.
Many musical instruments that we use today came from Ancient Egypt. They invented drums, cymbals, trumpets and pipes. The culture loved listening to music. We now understand how they shaped the modern world. Would we be able to enjoy the music if it wasn’t for the Egyptians?
The ancient Egyptians' worshipped many gods and believed in the afterlife. They influenced a lot of modern world religions with their ways of worshipping.
Egypt was extremely hot. The ancient Egyptians needed some way to protect themselves from the heat. They could not go bald because that would make the sun burn their heads. So they invented wigs! The wigs did not trap heat like natural hair. This is where wigs started from.
Scientists recently discovered that much of modern medicine could be traced back to Ancient Egypt. The remedies they used, like castor oil as a laxative, show another connection between this civilization and the modern world. The ancient Egyptians used acacia in cough medicines just like we do today. They also used Aloe Vera to soothe burns. This shows that they didn’t just believe in supernatural cures for illnesses.
Many of the ingredients in pills today are artificial. But the ancient Egyptians used original herbs and other ingredients for common medical problems. They also knew how to do surgery. Historians found what looked like surgical tools in a physician’s tomb. Egyptian texts show that they also tried removing cancerous tumors. This shows that surgery could have come from from their culture too. They were only simple surgeries, though.
The Egyptians didn’t like having smelly breath. They used frayed twigs like toothbrushes. After translating old texts, historians found that they had a recipe that looked like it was for toothpaste. These early kinds of toothpaste had pepper in them too! They would probably hurt our teeth today. But it’s clear that toothpaste first started here. We can thank the Egyptians for having clean teeth.
The Ancient Egyptians made the first vases. They poured melted glass into sand. These vases were usually for the Pharoah. They were probably used to decorate rooms. Before this, glass was only found in its natural form. The Ancient Egyptians were the first to try different crafts with glass. They even managed to make red glass! This kind of glass was really hard to make.
Ancient civilizations were the first to discover the things we use today. Ancient Egypt and the modern world have a lot in common. We play the sports that they invented and the language system. Ancient Egyptian pyramids are still standing today. This is because they were extremely intelligent people. There is a lot that we can learn just from looking at their inventions. Learning about history and how ancient civilizations lived shows us how we have discovered things and changed over time.
