How I Use It
As a part of our Ancient Egypt unit, students are always fascinated about the pyramids. Rather then just read about the pyramids, this app allows students to go inside the pyramids and explore for themselves. What is nice about the app is students can utilize the expert intro, information on each section they explore, view artifacts, or read through the 12 chapters on the pyramids. Students prefer to use it on their own rather than a large group activity. Their attention tends to wane a bit when they can't get their hands on it and explore on their own.
My Take
It is a great tool to use for students to get that walk through experience of exploring the pyramids. The immediate reaction is that students want to explore on their own. Students complete an Ancient Egyptian Museum project and those that are interested in pyramids find this app to be a useful resource to use during the construction of their project.
