Instructions: Click "go to material." When the image appears on screen, click on the image. The site offers segments on "gods and goddesses," "mummification," "pyramids," "temples," pharaoh," and "geography" and "daily life." This assignment will focus ONLY on gods and goddesses, mummification, temples and the pyramids. Each segment has three parts: Story, Explore, and Challenge. For gods and goddesses, mummification, temples and pyramids, read all the parts of "Story" and "Explore." You may access the "Challenge" segment if you wish, but it is NOT part of the assignment and the user will need to download Adobe Shockwave (a free download). After reading all the required parts, write a 7-9 page paper describing in detail Egyptian Religious practices.
