Arcventure The Egyptians
Grades 2-6, Win/Mac
Discover the world of Ancient Egypt, first by excavating and discovering ruins, then travel back in time to ask the Ancient Egyptians about the objects you have found! Arcventure: The Egyptians is designed to help students (aged 7-11 years) explore Ancient Egyptian life. When time traveling in Ancient times students are able to explore the area, talk to and ask questions of the people who live and work in Giza, Memphis and El-Amarna. The students are also able to access a journal throughout the adventure, which allows them to make notes about their progress and their findings. Student journals can also be accessed through the teacher controls, from which you can print or copy/paste it into a word-processing document such as Word. Arcventure: The Egyptians is a fantastic way to bring history to life!
Teacher controls are available to control difficulty levels, turn the narration and sound effects on or off, or protect access to teacher controls with a password. Student records are available that show each students progress in the program.
• Excavation - You are allowed a total of 14 days for the excavation and are allotted a spade, trowel, brush, and magnifying glass in which to dig! Choose your instruments wisely for each takes a different amount of time away from your day so clever strategy would be helpful here!
• Information Hut - At the end of each day's digging you can return to the information hut to look more closely at the objects you have found. The computer database contains information about most of the objects found in the excavation.
• Expeditions - If you find an object that is listed as unknown in the information hut, you will need to travel back to Ancient Egypt to find more about it. In the expedition you will find yourself in the pyramids you have just been excavating. Remember that you are on a fact-finding mission and you should keep a careful note of the information you find.
