This interactive book takes children on a tour through Ancient Egypt. Engaging activity sheets encourage children to investigate hieroglyphics, the gift of the Nile and the pharaohs. Simply hover a tablet or phone over the pages to listen to Nefertiti speak or watch an anmation of the flooding that created the seasons of ancient Egypt. This series really does bring history to life! There are 10 ActiveWorksheets in this book. Each ActiveWorksheet explains a different area of Egyptain life such as The Nile or women’s place in society. The ActiveWorksheets can be photocopied, and the trigger images will even work in black and white. The book includes a step-by-step teacher guide and a range of extension activities. Alongside this book are free apps for Android and iOS. The app uses ActiveLens augmented reality technology to bring the pages of the book to life. There is also a virtual reality app which can be used with a Google Cardboard to experience the wonder of discovering a fictional temple or palace.
