I’m doing a series called looking back, documenting learning the children and I did together prior to me blogging. To be honest it’s more for my sake than anyone else’s. Blogging is like having a scrap-book, but takes about a quarter of the time to stay up to date!
For part 1: Book list
Part 2: Mummification
Part 3: Hieroglyphs
Part 4: Egyptian Art
This is my final post on Ancient Egypt. We did lots more, but I don’t have any fun photos, just lots and lots of notebook pages. If anyone wants more information on everything else we covered, drop me a line in the comments section. This post contains all the rest of the photos I took at the time, covering their presentation and the couple of field trips we took.
At the end of each study we do a presentation. This was by far our most favourite! In fact everything about Egypt was our most favourite – it was just so much fun! The dress up are home made from a sheet, some woven material for T’s belt and card cut out for a collar and coloured in. We also allowed them to wear make up! (They are never allowed to wear make up-very exciting!!).
We also took a trip to a pottery place to try our hand at forming clay on a wheel:
And a trip to the British Museum:
And that is the end of our Egyptian study. We revisited Egypt in our studies last summer. We did our own Egyptian dig; solved an Egyptian mystery; explored the morality of mummies on display in museums; delved much deeper into the discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb and read Carter’s biography (Man who discovered Tutankhamen’s tomb) Click here if you’d like to learn more about what we did!
