We Loved Learning About Egypt
Primary 3 thoroughly enjoyed their Egypt topic. They learned about the Ancient Egyptian way of life and how it differs to their own. They carried out STEM challenges, science experiments, researched different artifacts, gods and pharaohs, made Egyptian bread, replica mummies and sarcophagi, scarab beetles, amulets, pharaoh portraits, canopic jars, papyrus paper and Tutankhamen’s death masks. They learned how to write in hieroglyphs and wrote messages to each other. They also learned the story of Moses and how he rescued the slaves from Egypt. At the end of our topic we held an Egypt’s Got Talent contest where the children had to pretend to be a god of their choice and we voted for who we thought was the best – Anubis won – god of embalming and the dead.
Friday 23rd November 2018
Primary 3 have had a fantastic time learning about Ancient Egypt and were lucky to go to the University of Aberdeen today to see their Ta-Kheru exhibition. Here we got see Ta-Kheru’s mummified body and her external coffin (sarcophagus); we learned that she had two coffins; an internal coffin and an external coffin (the lid of the inner coffin is still in Germany). We also saw what she would have looked like when she was alive and a holographic projection of what was under the bandages through technology from CT scans. As well as this we handled ancient Egyptian artifacts and made our own amulet necklaces.
