With this fun set of newspaper-themed writing prompts, your students can go on the scene and report about what is happening all around ancient Egypt! This FREE Newspaper Writing Prompts About Ancient Egypt set includes 10 writing prompts that are perfect for upper elementary and middle school. Your high school students might have fun with them, too!
This FREE Newspaper Writing Prompts About Ancient Egypt set starts with the “Big Picture,” which serves as some background information for your students and as a springboard for further study. Next are ten assignments they can choose from. They can interview stone quarry workers, report on the mummification of a pharaoh, and much more.
Also included are newspaper-style page templates for the students to write their story. Large black and white images are also included so they can illustrate their stories if they choose. There is even room for them to design their own advertisements for their stories if they wish (but they have to keep them appropriate to the time period being studied).
This is a fun way to get kids interested in both history and writing. It lets them step into the shoes of ancient people and imagine what life was like for them.
