Curriculum and Learning Experiences
Providing teachers with ready made teaching and learning activities mapped to the Australian and NSW Curriculum requirements
The Tut Roadshow experience is a state-of-the-art, interactive, multimedia and hands on learning experience focused on developing a knowledge-based understanding and positive appreciation of archaeology and its relevance for today. Through motivating and inspiring visuals, artefacts and hands on learning your students will be taken back in time to open up the world of Ancient Egyptology and its historical, religious, artistic and mathematical significance.
The Tut Roadshow Experience
The presence of our purpose built semi-trailer on your school campus will create an exciting educational buzz. Containing three theatrettes, visitors in groups of 10, will be taken through a journey starting with the geographic landscapes of Ancient Egypt, the Rosetta Stone and the discovery of the Tomb and the Golden Mask. The first theatrette, ‘The Code Room’ establishes historical background and introduces the personalities of Akhenaten, Tutankhamen, Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon.
Theatrette two, ‘The Tomb Room’ takes visitors inside Tutankhamen’s tomb chamber with the sarcophagus and tomb wall paintings displayed and explained. Many of the individual artefacts can be seen up close and information on their history, purpose and religious background provided. This section of the exhibition takes the death cult and Egyptian’s conception of the afterlife as its theme and explains the funerary objects, as well as the mummification process.
Theatrette three, ‘The Scroll Room’ centres on the tools and importance of archaeology, climaxing with the greatest discovery in the Middle East, the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Original ancient artifacts that are thousands of years old from the Roman Empire including pottery, lamps and glassware featuring a dish from Phonecia and a large urn from Saqqara, Egypt are featured.
This mix of audio visual, original and exact hand made copies of artefacts will provide an eye-opening learning experience not to be forgotten.
Supporting Teaching and Learning Resources
The Tut Roadshow experience is supported with a range of age appropriate suggestions and inquiry based activities for integrating the Tut Roadshow into teaching and learning experiences.
Using an inquiry model, these teaching and learning resources have been mapped to the Australian Curriculum and NSW syllabus to ensure learning area content from a range of Key Learning Areas has been met.
Through our interactive, engaging and relevant educational experience and resources, we aim to equip teachers and students with the knowledge and tools to ignite a passion for archaeology and the relevance it can bring to today’s society and understanding.
We encourage educators to use the supporting resources and modify them to suit their teaching and student needs.
