Egyptologist in the Making!

My students need various materials to build an ancient egyptian city, mask and tombs.

My Students

Do you remember the first time, history came alive for you? I'm sure it wasn't with a worksheet or coloring page. That is what I hope will happen for my students. Students will explore ancient Egypt with hands-on activities such as building pyramids, mummifying chickens and making Egyptian masks.

I have a class of 19 diverse second graders.

I have 12 boys and 7 girls and giving them an opportunity to explore their interest is essential. My children are inquisitive and have an innate desire to learn. They are energetic, unique and have a variety of talents. Every student possesses the ability to think critically, learn and understand information, and solve complex problems. My children come from all over Washington, DC with a diverse set of needs but one thing they all have in common is that they have a true thirst for knowledge.

My Project

As we learn about ancient Egypt, students will build an Egyptian city. I am requesting art materials such as clay, metallic pens, jewels, foam boards and sand paper so that students can build a miniature 3-D Egyptian city. Students will also make mask, canopic jars, mummify chickens and bury them in student created sarcophagi and tombs. This is a hands on, art integrated investigation into ancient Egypt.

The old Chinese proverb says, "I hear...I forget, I see...I remember...I do, I understand." I hope that by "doing"my students will retain and understand more of their learning about ancient Egypt.

We learn a lot from history and I want my students to know the contributions of those that came before them as they use this knowledge to change the world around them.
