Ancient Civilisations

Ancient Egypt and early Māori

Auckland War Memorial Museum - Tāmaki Paenga Hira.

Students take on the role of archaeologists to focus on two different civilisations: ancient Egyptian and early Māori.

In this one-hour lesson students will:

  • carefully examine the Museum's handling collection of objects and replicas to learn more about what life was like in ancient times
  • unpack the themes of culture, beliefs, tools and technology
  • discover how societies develop over time to reflect their values and needs
  • learn how people from ancient cultures made sense of the world around them.

Students will exercise their curiosity, knowledge and problem-solving abilities with hands-on experiences, feedback and questioning.
