Mummifying a Chicken!
Holding the heart in their hands... the Egyptians would take out all the organs but leave the heart. They believed they would need it in the after life.
Filling the cavity with salt to dry it out.
Sight Word Pyramids... HERE'S a POST about lots of ideas of making SIGHT WORDS FUN.
Our Egyptian get-up... old white pillow cases, cereal box necklaces with painted pasta and spray-painted golden crowns with glued on pumpkin seeds. Wow, that sounds really intense but it was fun.
Making papyrus... a total flop. Didn't work at all and just was a huge mess! Just imagine glue EVERYWHERE - and of course we had to run out the door before being able to clean up haha!
"Upper Egypt" was actually south of "Lower Egypt" because the Nile River flowed south to north, higher to lower. They won't remember any of this, but the goal is that they learn - Egypt is super cool!
B & H decided they would want to wear Upper Egypt's red crown, so we were off to Chick-Fil-A again (LIKE BACK HERE) to color ice cream red.
Scavenger hunt at our Art Museum which led to an Egyptian piece.
What Jack is doing through all of this... He's not always smiling but man, his dimples are cute!
So B wanted to do a scavenger hunt for Daddy which led to an Egyptian Hieroglyphic note!
