  • Hi, I really like the River Nile roleplay, but I think there is a mistake with the Level 1 roles (one star). They all say Role 9 - Farmer. Could you check this as I think the higher levels are too complicated for my students. Thanks

    • Hello again shelliscfc,
      I've double checked with the Designers and Teacher who made this resource. The lower ability 1 star sheet only has one role play activity, but has dotted lines in between so that you can cut out multiple sheets to save paper (which might be why it looked like the same role was repeated :) ). Hope that clears things up! Have a lovely afternoon.

  • I do not feel that the task the children have to do relates to the powerpoint? In the powerpoint you discuss the pictures and what is happening in them and then suddenly the children are asked to order dates with no explanation of these events in history or how BC works backwards? It just seems like the powerpoint should  be about important dates in Egyptian history or the task should be about the images of Egyptian daily life?

    • Hi lydiahann,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :) II have just downloaded this resource and looked through it and I'm very sorry but I am unable to find the task that you are referring to. Is it the River Nile Roles task that you are looking at or another? If you could let me know, I will be happy to get this updated for you :)

  • A lovely whole-class activity where each child is given a different role. Could extend this task to a great piece of writing too!
