As the King Tutankhamen exhibit returns to the United States, bring the excitement of the event into your classroom with this fun and informative site. Students can examine the pharaoh's body using CT scan imagery, take a narrated 360° tour of his tomb, use a built-in interface to investigate the decorative and symbolic markings, and take a look at the embalming process that preserved Tutankhamen's body.

In the Classroom

Use the short video on this site as an introductory activity during a lesson on King Tut and the burial rituals of the Ancient Egyptians. Play the video on the interactive whiteboard or projector to introduce the topic. Only 2.5 minutes long, the video is a great segway into a class discussion or lecture.
