Die Like an Egyptian A Multiple Intelligences Exploration of Egypt

Die Like an Egyptian A Multiple Intelligences Exploration of Egypt - At this site, students complete projects about ancient Egypt that correlate with Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences. Thie site is authored by Gina Mannino and Donna Clark.

Maybe it is just me but I think this site is a bit strange. However, I approve of teaching students about ancient Egypt so if it works...

For a brief overview of Multiple Intelligence Theory, check out Multiple Intelligences: Theory and Practice in Adult ESL.

From the site:

Welcome to ancient Egypt! For the next few weeks, you will be studying the culture and beliefs of the ancients. You will be simulating an Egyptian mummification as well as exploring different topics related to the Egyptians' belief in the afterlife. In addition, you will be required to complete three projects of your choice using the Internet.
