MEANING: Egyptian doors

I need some help on a problem I am proposing to my students. We have an exhibit of Egyptian art at the local museum which my 8th and 9th grade students will be seeing in about a month. I have been trying to tie our current work into the exhibit. One of the pieces is a false door from a chapel which we will study. We are going to look at other doors (Gates of Paradise, doorways in various buildings in American architecture, etc.), and then the students are going to consider doors and what they "mean." I hope to have them discover that certain kinds of doors convey different ideas about the space into which they are leading. They will be doing a drawing using the door as a theme and we are talking Tomorrow! Their doors will be about themselves in some way. Suggestions?
