Duration: 45 minutes

Objectives: 1. Students will be able to locate Egypt on a world map. 2. Students will understand the geographical location of Egypt in relation to other countries and continents. 3. Students will develop map reading skills.

Materials: - World map or globe - Individual maps or atlases for each student - Video resources (links provided below) - Worksheet (link provided below) - Markers or colored pencils

Introduction (5 minutes): 1. Begin the lesson by showing the students a world map or globe. 2. Ask the students if they know where Egypt is located. 3. Engage the students in a brief discussion about Egypt, its famous landmarks, and its location in relation to their own country.

Lesson Outline: 1. Display a world map or globe on the board. 2. Explain to the students that they will be learning about Egypt’s location on a map. 3. Show the students where Egypt is located on the map or globe. 4. Discuss the neighboring countries and continents surrounding Egypt. 5. Explain that Egypt is located in the northeastern part of Africa, bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north and the Red Sea to the east. 6. Distribute individual maps or atlases to each student.

Questioning (10 minutes): 1. Engage the students in a discussion by asking the following questions: - Can anyone name any countries that border Egypt? - What bodies of water surround Egypt? - Which continent is Egypt a part of? - Can you name any famous landmarks in Egypt? - Why do you think Egypt is an important country?

Assessment (10 minutes): 1. Distribute the worksheet to each student. 2. Instruct the students to locate Egypt on their individual maps or atlases and label it. 3.

Differentiation: 1. For students who may need additional support, provide a simplified map with Egypt already labeled. 2. Pair students with stronger map reading skills with those who may need assistance. 3. Use visual aids, such as pictures or flags, to help students identify Egypt on the map.

Plenary (5 minutes): 1. Gather the students together and review what they have learned about Egypt’s location. 2. Ask a few students to share their labeled maps with the class. 3.
