This teacher's guide offers background information and ideas for classroom activities that complement the large format film, Mysteries of Egypt. The first chapter includes a synopsis of the film; the others focus on ancient Egypt and the amazing accomplishments of its civilization.

Each chapter contains topics for discussion and research, fact and activity sheets, and a mystery suggestion -- a question or statement that can be used to stimulate interest in the study of ancient Egypt. The fact and activity sheets can be photocopied for use by students.

This guide has been designed to supplement educational resources available on the World Wide Web and elsewhere. Teachers are encouraged to adapt the information and activities to suit the ages and interest of their students.
