The Crafts and Culture of the Ancient Egyptians
Students can navigate up and down the Nile River, becoming entranced by the mysteries of ancient Egypt. They can read about the beliefs and religious practices of early Egyptians, their inventions and architecture, as well as the daily life of both slaves and nobles. They can design a pharaoh's headdress and necklace, recreate an ancient marble game, mummify a replica of a stuffed cat, and learn the art of writing hieroglyphs. Each artfully rendered craft represents a historical window into the vanished world of the ancient Egyptians.
