Slide 1: Lycée Si-Tarek of Relizane Third Year Pupils Literature &Philosophy Stream Slide 2: Daily Life in Ancient Egypt Slide 3: Paragraph 1 The ancient Egyptians were fascinating people, but thanks to the movies, they are often misunderstood. The ancient Egyptians were not in love with death, but with life! They enjoyed their life to the fullest. They worked very hard, but saved time to enjoy family, friends, music, parties, swimming, fishing, hunting, sailing, and especially their children, all of which were very important to the ancient Egyptians. Slide 4: In ancient Egypt, children were the heart of the family. If a couple could not have a child, they adopted a child.  Children were taught to be kind and honest, to respect their parents, to help with the family business, and to care for the elder members of their family. It was important that children learn to be caring. Paragraph 2 Slide 5: The ancient Egyptians believed in "Ma'at" - order and justice. They spent a lifetime trying to be fair and just at all times. Paragraph 3 Slide 6: The ancient Egyptians believed that you could only reach your afterlife if your heart was light. The only way your heart would be light is if you had spent a lifetime being kind and honest. Anyone and everyone, from the pharaoh on down, who made a mistake or lost their temper made up for it by doing good deeds to balance the scale.
